About this book

In this book, a holistic approach to pathogen and microbial contamination control is evident with the recognition that micro- propagators must address pathogen and microbial contamination in vitro, and diseases and microplant failure at establishment. There is increasing interest in establishing beneficial bacterial and mycorrhizal association with microplants in vitro and in vivo. Partly reprinted from Plant Cell, Tissue and Organ Culture.


Section 1: Overview. Section 2: Pathogen and Contaminant Detection and Identification. Section 3: Chemotherapy and Thermotherapy of Plants and Cultures. Section 4: Laboratory Contamination Management. Section 5: Disease at Microplant Establishment.
