Crithmum maritimum (Apiaceae), a perennial halophyte native in Greece, could be used as an alternative culture at problematic soils. It presents significant economical potentials as its essential oils are in high demand from the medicinal and cosmetic industry. The response of the species on in vitro conditions was studied. MS proved to be the most effective of the basal media tested for in vitro adventitious shoot production, resulting in significantly increased number of new microshoots… CONTINUE READING
