Application of Tissue Culture Propagation to Woody Plants

Abstract

During the past decade, commercial production of woody plants by tissue culture techniques has progressed from a future possibility to a rapidly expanding reality. The magnitude of this change is truly remarkable, both in terms of the number of plants produced and the number of species and cultivars now in production. Much of this expansion is now well documented in either the scientific or popular literature but must be obtained from other sources such as nursery catalogs and personal contacts.
