Oil palm is one of the most economically valuable oil seed plants, but the expansion of plantations has been limited by availability of seedlings, as the conventional propagation is through seeds, which have low germination rates. One possible solution for the large-scale production is the use of somatic embryogenesis. The aim of this study was evaluate the(More)
Large-scale propagation of oil palm (Elaeis guineensis, Jacq.) is difficult due to its single apical meristem. Thus, obtaining plants is mainly through seed germination, and a long growing period is required before oil production is possible. An alternative to large-scale seedling production is indirect somatic embryogenesis. The aim of this study was to(More)
The combined analysis of cell viability, mitotic index and callus morphology of species of commercial interest may favor the identification of cell masses with embryogenic characteristics at early stages of cultivation, allowing the development or improvement of protocols for in vitro plant regeneration through indirect embryogenesis.
