Apogamous sporophytes were produced on Platycerium coronarium gametophytes cultured in the presence of indole-3-acetic acid (IAA). The percentage of apogamy as well as the total number of apogamous sporophytes produced per gametophyte clump were highest in the presence of 40 μM IAA. When ethylene was allowed to accumulate in the culture vessel in the presence of an optimum level of IAA, the percentage and total number of apogamous sporophyte production decreased significantly.

IN VITRO PROPAGATION IN PTERIDOPHYTES : A REVIEW Singha

Pteridophytes, by virtue of possessing great variety and fascinating foliage, have drawn the attention and admiration of horticulturists and plant lovers for centuries. Characterized by an

I N VITRO PROPAGATION IN PTERIDOPHYTES : A REVIEW

The rare and economically important pteridophyte species should be treated as the authors' natural heritage and properly conserved and in vitro propagation is the alternative method for propagation and conserving these species.

In Vitro Regeneration Systems of Platycerium

In this review, regeneration systems of Platycerium using in vitro techniques are summarized and compared to those among other fern species, and the influence of initial explants, culture media, plant growth regulators, wounding, etc., on morphogenesis, including apospory and apogamy is presented.

Exogenous and endogenous growth regulators on apogamy in Dryopteris affinis (Lowe) Fraser-Jenkins sp. affinis

The role of gibberellins on apogamy was supported by data showing a decrease in the percentage of gametophytes developing embryos because of the addition of flurprimidol to the culture medium.

Sporophyte induction studies in ferns in vitro

Sporophytes induction from spore-derived gametophytes and the morphogenic potential of homogenised sporophytes were performed in several ferns and no correlation was found between the proportion of sexual phenotypes and rate of sporophyte formation.

Chapter 8 In Vitro Regeneration Systems of Platycerium

The staghorn fern genus, Platycerium Desv., belongs to the family Polypodiaceae. It is an epiphytic genus of pantropical distribution, consisting of 15–18 species, cultivated worldwide because of

Morphogenetic plasticity of callus reinitiated from cell suspension cultures of the fern Platycerium coronarium

The dark-green gametophytic callus showed a faster rate of growth and morphogenesis as compared to the pale-green sporophyticCallus, and the availability of cell cultures of the same ploidy level, but with two distinct pathways of development will be useful for comparative studies of developmental plasticity.

Morphological and Tissue Culture Studies of Platycerium coronarium, a Rare Ornamental Fern Species from Malaysia

Data from scanning electron microscopy revealed similar ultrastructures of both types of leaves, i.e., the presence of multicellular trichomes on both the abaxial and adaxial surfaces of intact and in vitro P. coronarium.

Production of aposporous gametophytes and calli from Pteris vittata L. pinnae strips cultured in vitro

The first report of simultaneous production of calli and gametophytes from fern explants is reported, and it is reported that the calli regenerated sporophytes when cultured on MS medium without growth regulators and the gamettes grew vegetatively on MSmedium but produced sporophyte when transferred into 0.1 strength MS medium.

THE INFLUENCE OF CULTURAL CONDITIONS ON THE INDUCTION OF APOGAMY IN PTERIDIUM GAMETOPHYTES

Induced apogamy in plants with typical alternation of generations affords a rare opportunity to investigate and learn some of the conditions regulating the periodic expression of gametophytic and sporophytic phases.

The effect of light quality on the induction of apogamy in prothalli of Pteridium aquilinum

Pteridium gametophytes cultured on a medium containing 4% sucrose under various qualities of light exhibit different developmental responses, allowing a distinct separation of the specific induction of apogamy from a general enhancement ofgametophytic growth.

Based on their response to auxin, ACC, AVG and Co2+, the ethylene biosynthetic pathway in these three lower vascular plants appears similar to that existing in angiosperms.

GROWTH REGULATION BY ETHYLENE IN FERN GAMETOPHYTES. I. EFFECTS ON PROTONEMAL AND RHIZOIDAL GROWTH AND INTERACTION WITH AUXIN

Evidence that gametophytes produced ethylene was substantiated by a direct gas chromatographic demonstration of ethylene formation and the growth-regulating effects of Ethylene and auxin appeared to be independent in filament and rhizoid growth.

Ethylene-Mediated Regulation of Gibberellin Content and Growth in Helianthus annuus L.

It is concluded that GA content is a factor which may limit elongation in hypocotyls of sunflower, and that while exposure to ethylene results in reduced concentration of GA(1) this is not sufficient per se to account for the inhibition of elongation caused by ethylene.

Systematic inferences from spore and stomate size in the ferns

A considerable body of evidence has been assembled supporting the contention that spore size is related to ploidy level in the ferns and an exhaustive analysis of spore features of northeastern North American Isoetes provided new insight into spore-size variability.
