Somatic Embryogenesis in Siberian Dwarf Pine (Pinus pumila (Pall.) Regel)
Siberian dwarf pine ( Pinus pumila (Pall.) Regel) belongs to the five-needle pines, grows in northeastern Siberia, and occupies a vast area extending from the northern Siberia to the Kamchatka Peninsula. This species has of great ecological and economic value. Its thickets are widely used for landscape. P. pumila seeds serve as an important food source for animals. However, this species is seriously threatened in the larger area due to long-term forest fires, which hamper its natural regeneration.
The reported study was funded by Russian Foundation for Basic Research, Government of Krasnoyarsk Territory, Krasnoyarsk Region Science and Technology Support Fund to the research projects No 15-04-01427 и No 16-44-240509.
