Adventitious rooting (AR) is a multifactorial response leading to new roots at the base of stem cuttings, and the establishment of a complete and autonomous plant. AR has two main phases: (a) induction, with a requirement for higher auxin concentration; (b) formation, inhibited by high auxin and in which anatomical changes take place. The first stages of(More)
Adventitious rooting is a complex developmental response affected by genetic and environmental factors. Radiation quality effects on adventitious rooting depend on characteristics such as species, growth stage, irradiance, spectral quality, and time of exposure. Eucalyptus is an essential genus for the paper industry, and high yield plantations depend on(More)
The plant hormone auxin plays a central role in adventitious rooting and is routinely used with many economically important, vegetatively propagated plant species to promote adventitious root initiation and development on cuttings. Nevertheless the molecular mechanisms through which it acts are only starting to emerge. The Arabidopsis superroot2-1 (sur2-1)(More)
Essential oils have many functions in plant development; among them, they take part in plant–plant interactions, such as allelopathy. The phytotoxicity of the essential oil of Heterothalamus psiadioides was evaluated on Arabidopsis thaliana adventitious rooting. This development process has demonstrated great sensitivity to phytotoxic essential oils and has(More)
