Grafting In Vitro
Part of the Methods in Molecular Biology™ book series (MIMB, volume 6)
Graft formation in plants involves the severing of the vascular system with consequent loss of water and solute transport throughout the plant. This transport must be restored to prevent death resulting from nutrient starvation or dessication.
