    Parental environments may potentially affect offspring fitness, and the expression of such parental effects may depend on offspring environments and on whether one considers an individual offspring or all offspring of a parent. Using a well-studied clonal herb, Alternanthera philoxeroides , we...

    The propagation of lilac (Syringa vulgaris L.) sorts in vitro was studied in order to improve the propagation protocol. It has been established that a convenient time for single node explant isolation from young shoots is the period when generative buds blossom out. Microcutting type (single...

    Roots of Chlorophytum borivilianum (safed musli) were regenerated by taking explants from isolated field grow mature plants. Two types explants stem disc and shoot base were used in the micropropagation. This was achieved by culturing on MS solid medium with and without harmones. Both leaf base...

    A rapid invitro regeneration protocol for induction of multiple shoots from nodal segments of Inula racemosa Hook.f. was developed. Leaf and nodal segments were inoculated on MS medium containing different concentrations of Benzylaminopurine (BAP) either alone or in combination with Naphthalene...

    This study describes a Platycerium bifurcatum (Cav.) C. Chr. propagation method through initiation of green globular bodies (GGBs) from juvenile leaf explants of in vitro grown sporophytes. The GGB initiation was first obtained by incubating the explants on MS medium supplemented with...

    This review focuses on clonal propagation of mature trees by tissue culture. Most trees have marked phase changes that result in a decline in their potential for somatic embryogenesis or micropropagation. By altering conditions of the source material ex vitro, or by changing in vitro conditions...
