Somatic embryos which originated from mature embryo axes of the chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) showed varied morphologies. Embryos were classified based on shape of the embryo and number of cotyledons. “Normal” (zygotic-like) embryos were bipolar structures with two cotyledons and a well-developed shoot and root apical meristem, whereas “aberrant” embryos were horn-shaped, had single and multiple cotyledons, and were fasciated. Histological examination revealed the absence of a shoot apical… CONTINUE READING
