  author={E. Gatti},
  journal={Biologia Plantarum},
Ailanthus altissima, a fast-growing and contamination-resistant species is investigated for its use in areas contaminated by heavy metals. A micropropagation protocol for A. altissima was developed, cultured shoots were tested for in vitro heavy metals tolerance. Proliferation rate and shoot length were affected by 6-benzylaminopurine (BAP) and Murashige and Skoog’s (MS) salt concentrations, best results were obtained in full strength MS medium supplemented with 1.32 or 2.64 µM BAP.
