Four Indonesian and two Latin-American cassava genotypes (Manihot esculenta Crantz), were evaluated for their ability to develop somatic embryos from young leaf lobes. All genotypes formed somatic embryos but they differed in the frequency of embryos induced. The best genotypes, M. Col 22 and Tjurug, produced germinating embryos (GE) on 81% (22.1 GE/initial(More)
This electronic document is a corrected update of the hardcopy version, published on 30 May 2006 together with a list of errata. Abstract Climate change scenarios for the Netherlands for temperature, precipitation, potential evaporation and wind for 2050, and for sea level rise for 2050 and 2100 have been constructed using a range of data sources and(More)
The storage of a clone ofColocasia esculenta at 28/24°C over a 12-h photoperiod in the absence of mannitol, was not feasible with transfer intervals of more than eight months. Mannitol had a positive effect on survival at this temperature, but caused abnormalities at high concentrations. At 9°C in total darkness,C. esculenta could be stored for more than(More)
A new set of climate change scenarios for 2050 for the Netherlands was produced recently. The scenarios span a wide range of possible future climate conditions, and include climate variables that are of interest to a broad user community. The scenario values are constructed by combining output from an ensemble of recent General Climate Model (GCM)(More)
Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has been received with great interest by stakeholders in many sectors of modern society where climate change may have serious consequences. One means of dealing with the inevitable uncertainty of future climate is by constructing a suite of different discrete climate change scenarios. The present paper describes how a new set(More)
