About this book


Whole plants have been regenerated from isolated protoplasts, cells, tissues, and organs freeze-preserved in liquid nitrogen. Thus cryopreservation has proved to be an important tool for the storage and conservation of plant genetic resources.
Numerous experts have contributed to this volume, which is divided into the following sections: I Cryopreservation of Plant Cells, Tissues, Organs, and Seeds; II Tree species - Citrus, Malus, Morus, Pyrus, Juglans, Date-Palm, Oil Palm, Coconut, Veitchia, Howea, Calamus, Hevea, Larix, Picea, and Pinus; III Cereals and Grasses - Wheat, Rice, Maize, Setaria, Puccinellia, and Sugarcane; IV Legumes and Oilseed Crops - Arachia hypogaea, Cicer arietinum, Pisum sativum, Medicago, Trifolium and Brassica
