In oak species, there is paucity of information on the anatomical changes underlying differentiation of somatic embryos from explants of mature trees. A histological study was undertaken to ascertain the cellular origin and ontogenesis of somatic embryos in leaf cultures from a 100-yr-old Quercus robur tree. Somatic embryogenesis was induced in expanding leaves excised from shoots forced from branch segments, following culture on three successive media containing different concentrations of… CONTINUE READING
