Plant Cell and Tissue Culturegives an exhaustive account of plant cell culture and genetic transformation, including detailed chapters on all major field and plantation crops.
Part Apresents a comprehensive coverage of all necessary laboratory techniques for the initiation, nutrition, maintenance and storage of plant cell and tissue cultures, including discussions on these topics, as well as on morphogenesis and regeneration, meristem and shoot tip culture, plant protoplasts, mutant cell lines, variation in tissue cultures, isogenic lines, fertilization control, cryopreservation, transformation, and the production of secondary metabolites.
Part Bthen proceeds into detail on the specificin vitroculture of specific crops, including cereals, legumes, vegetables, potatoes, other roots and tubers, oilseeds, temperate fruits, tropical fruits, plantation crops, forest trees and ornamentals.
Plant Cell and Tissue Cultureis, and is likely to remain, the laboratory manual of choice, as well as a source of inspiration and a guide to all workers in the field.

Editorial Reviews

` ... the book is full of interesting and up-to-date information that will be a valuable basis for understanding and further investigating plant cell culture. ... It should be recommended to scientists working with in vitro cultures, and to graduate students.' Journal of Plant Physiology, 147 (1995)
