The effects of increased photon flux (100 μmol m−2 s−1), ventilation, and standard in vitro culture (40 μmol m−2 s−1) with no ventilation were investigated on the physiological and histological characteristics of microshoots of Gevuina avellana. The increase in photon flux (light treatment) produced significant improvement in the fluorescence parameters of(More)
Adequate in vitro micro-environments are crucial to induce life compatible leaf development. Key morphological and physiological traits are needed to allow ex vitro survival. We study, how in vitro light and ventilation affect physiological performance and survival of ex vitro Castanea sativa plantlets. In vitro treatments consisted of two irradiances of 50(More)
One derivative (Param-A) of a water-soluble compound of 2-methyl-1,4-naphthoquinone has been commercially launched to induce resistance against Panama disease in bananas, caused by Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. cubense. This paper reports on a long-term experiment in order to verify the improvements that Param-A can provide in unfavourable banana culture(More)
Phase change in higher plants, from juvenile to mature, affects the reproductive competence, morphology and growth rate, as well as the regenerative potential of tissue explants. However, in conifers these changes can be achieved before the onset of flowering and at the beginning of the seed production. Early maturational changes in conifers are very(More)
