Induction of tetraploid poplar and black locust plants using colchicine: chloroplast number as an early marker for selecting polyploids in vitro

Abstract

Tetraploid plants were produced by inducing chromosome doubling using colchicine in in vitro shoot tips of poplar and black locust clones. Many of the plants treated with colchicine showed modified morphological characteristics like stunted growth, thicker leaves and modified leaf morphology. The counting of chloroplast number in the epidermal guard cells… (More)
