Micropropagation via enhanced axillary shoot proliferation was investigated in the ornamental Eucalyptus cv. ‘Urrbrae Gem’ using in vitro germinated seedlings and was successfully achieved using woody plant medium (WPM) supplemented with 2.2 μM benzylaminopurine, 1.0 μM α-naphthaleneacetic acid, and 1.5 μM gibberellic acid (GA3), gelled with 5 g l−1(More)
Little information is available on how genetic and environmental factors affect eucalypt bud and flower development. Such information would be useful, not only to breeders (for prediction of when flowers will be ready for crossing and for prediction of cross outcomes) but also to producers of cut flowers (for prediction of when buds and flowers will be(More)
The parentage of ‘Urrbrae Gem’, an ornamental hybrid Eucalyptus, was investigated using RAPD-PCR. The female parent was known to be E. erythronema var. erythronema but previous opinion, based on adult morphological characters, placed the male parent as either E. stricklandii or E. gomphocephala. Samples of DNA, extracted from leaves of different individuals(More)
