Post-maturation treatment improves and synchronizes somatic embryo germination of three species of Japanese pines


Somatic embryos of three Japanese pines, Pinus thunberghii, P. densiflora, and P. armandii var. amamiana, were subjected to different post-maturation treatments to improve both germination and plant conversion frequencies. Slow desiccation of somatic embryos at high relative humidity resulted not only in a marked increment in germination frequencies but… (More)
