Somatic embryo induction from immature zygotic embryos followed by embryo development and maturation has been achieved in holm oak (Quercus ilex L.). Different types of explant have been assayed for the induction of somatic embryogenesis. Only immature zygotic embryos, collected in August, were successfully induced. Best results were obtained in Gamborg et al. (1968) medium supplemented with 10 μM BAP and 10 μM NAA. The reduction of the macronutrient concentration improved the rate of somatic… CONTINUE READING
