A complete teaching guide with hands-on laboratories, this book is edited by two of the leading experts in the field. The text develops a working knowledge of the principles of plant propagation, as they apply in temperate and tropical environments. In addition to presenting the essential fundamentals, this carefully conceived work provides proven protocols and practices that students will be able to apply in their laboratory and field experiences.
  • Logically organized for quick reference
  • Packed with suggestions and step-by-step protocols
  • Lays flat for easy bench use
  • Provides collateral material for classroom use

All of the main concepts presented in the text are supported with carefully chosen laboratory and greenhouse exercises that the authors have used successfully in teaching situations. These exercises illustrate propagation concepts, while providing students with basic propagation skill sets.

Plant Propagation Concepts and Laboratory Exercises contains up-to-date information that will teach students how to—

  • Choose the best methods for plant propagation including proper media and containers
  • Perform techniques such as budding, cutting, layering, and grafting, as well as cloning
  • Recognize and respond to propagation challenges such as common plant diseases

While the book is designed to meet the needs of plant science classes, it contains enough practical and up-to-date information and detailed protocols to serve the reference needs of those who continue to be active in plant science research.

Each book ncludes a CD-ROM with full-color illustrations and PowerPoint presentations

About the authors: Prolific in their research, writing, and teaching, Caula Beyl and Robert Trigiano are highly respected for their cutting edge investigative work across a wide area of plant science. Well-rooted in the discipline of traditional plant propagation, their pioneering investigations have covered nearly every aspect of plant science from horticulture and plant tissue culture to biotechnology, molecular analysis, and plant physiology.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"… attractive as well as instructive, Invaluable for anyone, even novices, it can re-educate the more experienced practitioner in current concepts and techniques. The bullet point summaries beginning the chapters on concepts link to the associated practical chapters. These are great fun and should encourage confidence to tackle more complex investigations later."
— Roland Fox, Society for General Microbiology
