The jet-black to streaked ebony wood produced by the African ebony (Diospyros crassiflora Hiern, Ebenaceae) is exploited in Central and West Africa. A conservation effort is currently underway in Cameroon to propagate the tree through seedlings and cuttings. However, the intermittent availability of its seeds and the long time required for rooting formation of cuttings are limiting its propagation. This study aims to develop a successful protocol for ebony micropropagation. In vitro culture of…

Effective propagation of Diospyros crassiflora (Hiern) using twig cuttings

The results of the study suggest that D. crassiflora is amenable to vegetative propagation by leafy stem cutting.

Micropropagation of mature British wild cherry

Shoot tips from accessions of wild cherry selected from British woodland, and also the P. avium rootstock cvs.

In Vitro Culture and Rooting of Diospyros virginiana L.

Own-rooted clonal persimmon could offer several advantages to specialty fruit growers such as elimination of grafting, graft incompat- ibility issues, and improved rootstocks for variety testing.

Micropropagation of Japanese persimmon (Diospyros kaki L.)

Only four species of persimmons are important for their fruit production, and the most important species is undoubtedly D. kaki, Japanese or Oriental persimmon, often referred to simply as Kaki (Fig. 1).

The role of cytokinins on in vitro shoot production in Salix tetrasperma Roxb.: a tree of ecological importance

In vitro rooting of shoots was best achieved in half-strength WPM containing 0.5 μM IBA, and shoot induction response was best on WPM supplemented with 6-benzyladenine.

Varietal differences in Shoot Tip Culture of Japanese Persimmon

Shoot growth in shoot tip culture had no relation to tree vigor and earliness of sprouting time and indicated a size factor, because the shoot, leaf and callus grew better with increases in the score.

Promotion by phloroglucinol of adventitious root formation in micropropagated shoots of adult wild cherry (Prunus avium L.)

Micropropagated shoots of wild cherry (Prunus avium L.) produced roots in auxin-free medium. Phloroglucinol (PG) increased the proportion of shoots that rooted, while phloretic acid reduced this

Invitro seed germination, proliferation, and ISSR marker-based clonal fidelity analysis of Shorea tumbuggaia Roxb.: an endangered and high trade medicinal tree of Eastern Ghats

The presented work is the first report of in vitro proliferation, conservation, and clonal fidelity assessment of tissue culture generated S. tumbuggaia plantlets and showed more than 70% acclimatization in potting conditions and were established successfully in a greenhouse, with morphological similarities to mother plants.


It is found that on five of these prothalli the spontaneous appearance of undifferentiated calluses appeared on the upper surface and were formed of a mass of greenish cells containing fewer chloroplastids than those of the remainder of the prothallus.
