About this book

High-efficiency micropropagation, with relatively low labour costs, has been demonstrated in this unique book detailing liquid media systems for plant tissue culture. World authorities (e.g. von Arnold, Curtis, Takayama, Ziv) contribute seminal papers together with papers from researchers across Europe that are members of the EU COST Action 843 "Advanced micropropagation systems". First-hand practical applications are detailed for crops – including ornamentals and trees – using a wide range of techniques, from thin-film temporary immersion systems to more traditional aerated bioreactors with many types of explant – shoots to somatic embryos. The accounts are realistic, balanced and provide a contemporary account of this important aspect of mass propagation.

This book is essential reading for all those in commercial micropropagation labs, as well as researchers worldwide who are keen to improve propagation techniques and lower economic costs of production. Undergraduate and postgraduate students in the applied plant sciences and horticulture will find the book an enlightened treatise.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This book describes very well recent developments in liquid culture system for in vitro plant propagation. It will be an excellent source of information to the researchers for refining methodologies on large-scale plant propagation and secondary metabolite production. … This book is highly recommended to the researchers and students, and libraries." (S. Mohan Jain, Plant Cell, Tissue and Organ Culture, Vol. 84, 2006)
