A micropropagation protocol was developed for the conservation of the critically endangered Western Australian shrub,Symonanthus bancroftii. It was necessary to screen antioxidant treatments to prevent the occurrence of lethal browning of explants upon excision. Potassium citrate and citric acid (0.1% w/v in a 4:1 ratio) prevented oxidative browning and was superior to the untreated control or other antioxidant treatments tested. Half strength Murashige and Skoog (MS) medium containing 0.5 μM… CONTINUE READING
