Abstract

Since the first edition of our book “Tissue Culture in Forestry” in 1982 we have witnessed remarkable advances in cell and tissue culture technologies with woody perennials. In addition to forest biologists in government, industry, and universities, we now have molecular biologists, genetic engineers, and biochemists using cell and tissue cultures of woody species routinely. Therefore, the time has come for an update of the earlier edition. In our present effort to cover new developments we have expanded to three volumes:
  1. 1.

    General Principles and Biotechnology

     
  2. 2.

    Specific Principles and Methods: Growth and Development

     
  3. 3.

    Case Histories: Gymnosperms, Angiosperms and Palms
