Micropropagation of Peatland Bryophytes from Tierra del Fuego
New insights are provided into the propagation of species from poorly known peatland ecosystems of southern South America by assessing different conditions to propagate bryophytes, focusing on species from fuegian peat land ecosystems. Expand
Techniques for the In Vitro Propagation of Rhodophiala and Leucocoryne spp.
It is determined that it is possible to propagate Leucocoryne and Rhodophiala bulbs in vitro with different mechanical, environmental, and chemical treatments to determine the optimum method to increase bulb production rates. Expand
Cooperative research projects between the University of Connecticut in the United States of America and the Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Chile and the Universidad de Talca in Chile on theExpand
Response of Lilium sp. 'Stargarzer' to exogenous ethylene during postharvest
Results showed no significant differences between treatments for leaf colour or in days for the first flower to attain the fully opened stage, however, the lifespan of spikes is significantly reduced with ethylene concentrations of 100 and 1000 ppm and Lilium sp. Expand
Gamma irradiation on Alstroemeria aurea G. in vitro rhizomes: an approach to the appropriate dosage for breeding purposes
In vitro cultured rhizomes of Alstroemeria aurea were irradiated with a gamma source using different dosages to evaluate the direct effect produced and damage and number of rhizome sprouting were observed and recorded during 61 days after irradiation. Expand
First Report of Alfalfa mosaic virus Infection in Viburnum tinus in Chile.
Viburnum tinus L., commonly known as laurustinus, is an ornamental shrub that is widely used as a garden plant and flower crop. V. tinus is popular because of its desirable characteristics such asExpand
Advances and strategies for micropropagation of Proteaceae species.
In vitro protocols for species of the Proteaceae family, considered difficult for vegetative multiplication both ex vitro and in vitro, are developed and significant difference was found for the method of partial etiolation in Protea 'Lady Di' depending on the season of the year. Expand
