SummarySecond generation aposporous gametophytes were obtained from sporophytes derived from first generation aposporous gametophytes, which in turn came from the mature fronds grown from spores in the laboratory. Murashige and Skoog modified medium in 1% agar supplemented with sugar alcohols (sorbitol, mannitol), auxins (NAA, 2,4-D) and cytokinin (BA) promoted a higher percentage of aposporous development from mature fronds ofPyrrosia piloselloides derived from aseptically cultured spores as… Expand
Efficient induction of apospory and apogamy in vitro in silver fern (Pityrogramma calomelanos L.)
TLDR
The established protocol accomplishes apogamy and apospory insilver fern, and the aposporous gametophytes can be used for genetic transformation and development of transgenic silver fern. Expand
Induction of sporocarp development in vitro in the mosquito fern, Azolla rubra R. Br.
TLDR
Induction of sporocarp development, callus, and indirect organogenesis were accomplished and influence of various factors such as agar, light, phosaphate, sucrose and pH on in vitro growth of A. rubra was studied. Expand
I N VITRO PROPAGATION IN PTERIDOPHYTES : A REVIEW
TLDR
The rare and economically important pteridophyte species should be treated as the authors' natural heritage and properly conserved and in vitro propagation is the alternative method for propagation and conserving these species. Expand

Sporophyte induction studies in ferns in vitro
TLDR
Sporophytes induction from spore-derived gametophytes and the morphogenic potential of homogenised sporophytes were performed in several ferns and no correlation was found between the proportion of sexual phenotypes and rate of sporophyte formation. Expand
From Spore to Sporophyte: How to Proceed In Vitro

Production of aposporous gametophytes from Drymoglossum piloselloides (L.) Presl. frond strips
Strips of Drymoglossum piloselloides fronds in a modified Murashige and Skoog medium in 1% agar produced aposporous gametophytes in about 2 months. Young fronds showed a greater ability to developExpand
Induced Apospory in Polypodiaceous Ferns
TLDR
The induction of outgrowths of gametophytic tissue from the sporophyte in mosses has been accomplished many times since Pringsheim first reported it, but the only well-investigated example of its induction and consequences is in Osmunda, where apospory was induced by continued maltreatment and malnutrition of the sporeling.

THE DEVELOPMENT OF APOSPOROUS GAMETOPHYTES AND REGENERATED SPOROPHYTES FROM EPIDERMAL CELLS OF EXCISED FERN LEAVES: AN ANATOMICAL STUDY'
TLDR
Anatomical observations of excised- leaves grown in vitro demonstrate that only the epidermal cells are stimulated to divide and give rise to the various types of outgrowths. Expand
The controlled in vitro differentiation of callus derived from a fern, Pteris cretica L., into gametophytic or sporophytic tissues
TLDR
The part played by sugars in the determination of gametophytic and sporophytic development is discussed in the light of the conditions promoting the initiation of callus, and its growth in subculture. Expand

TLDR
Experiments indicate that the effect of sucrose on the differentiation of fern leaf tissue into either gametophyte or sporophyte is nutritional rather than osmotic. Expand
REGENERATION AND INDUCED POLYPLOIDY IN FERNS
TLDR
Induced apospory, or the regeneration of prothalli from the young leaves of ferns, has been known since I908, when Goebel (9) described regeneration from a third family. Expand
Vegetative Propagation in Relation to Juvenility, Maturity, and Rejuvenation
TLDR
Mass vegetative propagation allows mass propagation of hybrids and polyploids with low sexual fertility and increased productivity is immediate, whereas with sexual propagation it requires several generations. Expand
