Editorial Reviews

Contains papers from a September 1995 meeting, highlighting regeneration by organogenesis and somatic embryogenesis, gene expression and molecular physiology, molecular markers, genome mapping, gene transfer, and biotic/abiotic stress-related molecular characterizations. For researchers and professionals in biotechnology. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
From the Publisher
'Overall, this book provides a comprehensive update of biotechnology in an extensive range of woody plants. It is extremely informative, well written with good illustrations and includes a wide range of strategies and techniques utilised within this field. It is essential reading for all researchers involved in forest tree biotechnology and would be highly recommended to all plant science libraries.'
