A rapid micropropagation system for Scabiosa tschiliensis Grunning, an ethnic medicinal plant, has been developed. Calluses were induced from leaf and petiole explants on Murashige and Skoog (MS) medium supplemented with 2.0 mg l−1 thidiazuron and 0.5 mg l−1 2,4-dicholorophenoxyacetic acid. In this medium, callus induction rate was about 94.05 %.(More)
