About this book

This book presents a detailed analysis of up-to-date literature on in vitro morphogenesis at cell, tissue, organ and whole plant levels. It covers differentiation of vascular elements, cellular differentiation for secondary metabolite production, and morphological, physiological and biochemical aspects of organogenic, embryogenic and floral differentiation from gametic, somatic and hybrid cells. Applications of haploids, somatic hybrids, synthetic seeds and cellular differentiation in plant improvement, propagation and industry are also dealt with.

'However, I also consider that this book should be read and consulted widely by researchers, teachers and students involved in the biological sciences and agriculture.' Plant Pathology, 50 (2001)
