About this book

This book covers the latest developments in somatic cell genetics and molecular genetics of trees. The main topics included in this book are regeneration by organogenesis and somatic embryogenesis, gene expression and molecular physiology, molecular markers, genome mapping, gene transfer, and biotic/abiotic stress-related molecular characterizations. The papers in this book have been contributed by experts in the above-mentioned areas.

'Overall, this book provides a comprehensive update of biotechnology in an extensive range of woody plants. It is extremely informative, well written with good illustrations and includes a wide range of strategies and techniques utilised within this field. It is essential reading for all researchers involved in forest tree biotechnology and would be highly recommended to all plant science libraries.' Plant Growth Regulation, 22 (1997)
