Rose leaf structure in relation to different stages of micropropagation

  title={Rose leaf structure in relation to different stages of micropropagation},
  author={Maria Johansson and E. C. Kronestedt-Robards and Anthony William Robards},
The Mme Isaac Pereire rose was investigated in an attempt to establish how micropropagated roses might best be weaned into normal growth conditions. Leaves of in vitro grown plants, weaned plants and the stock plant were studied, using light microscopy and different scanning and transmission electron microscopical techniques. Features that varied in the different growing conditions were leaf size and thickness, amount of wax, thickness of cuticle and external epidermal cell wall, number and… CONTINUE READING
