The chlorophyllous in vitro cultures can grow vigorously in sugar-free medium by improving the in vitro environment to promote photosynthesis, transpiration and inorganic nutrient uptake of the cultures. Photoautotrophic micropropagation method using sugar-free medium, in which the growth of cultures or accumulation of carbohydrates in cultures is dependent upon the photosynthesis and inorganic nutrient uptake of cultures. This book is an excellent ambitious book that introduces the new propagation method for plant propagation and seeks to provide a comprehensive account of the latest advances in understanding sugar-free micropropagation for high quality transplant production. This is an ideal book that spans topics from physical state of culture environment to commercial application of photoautotrophic micropropagation. The issues discussed include definition, concept, principle, methodology, applications, advantages and disadvantages of photoautotrophic micropropagation. Outstanding features of this book are, 1) it is the first book on photoautotrophic micropropagation or micropropagation on sugar-free medium, 2) most of the authors are acknowledged as the experts in their designated research area; 3) this is a unique book which covers both biological and engineering aspects of photoautotrophic micropropagation and transplant production in closed system; 4) it also covers its concept, basics, applications and cost analysis; 5) it represents an integration of state-of-art, multidisciplinary technologies and knowledge. This book will be an important asset to the researchers and scientists in the field of plant development, plant tissue culture, biotechnology, horticulture, agriculture, forestry and environmental control.
