From the Publisher
PRAISE FOR THE FIRST EDITION
'This is an excellent laboratory manual. The student can learn many plant tissue culture techniques commonly used today.'
HORTSCIENCE
'This book is an excellent overview of important tissue culture techniques. It is highly recommended for laboratory courses in tissue culture and would be useful in research laboratories where tissue culture techniques are required. Practical aspects of tissue culture are explained in a clear and concise way. This is essential for the novice and useful for experienced individuals planning a new course or laboratory. The manual is commended for providing information required for successful tissue culture at the fingertips of students.'
