  • Somatic Embryogenesis in Woody Plants

    Somatic Embryogenesis in Woody Plants

    The rapid progress on somatic embryogenesis and its prospects for potential application to improving woody plants prompted us to edit this book initially in three volumes, and now an additional three more volumes. We were all convinced that such a treatise was needed and would be extremely useful to researchers and students. This volume 6 is dedicated to Prof. Harry Waris, Helsinki, Finland, who did pioneer work on somatic embryogenesis ...

    Temperate Fruit Crops in Warm Climates

    This book on temperate fruit crops in warm climates is the first one dedicated to this subject. It presents a wealth of data regarding growing these crops in warm climates. It covers two aspects: the genetic approach, that led to a search of adapted cultivars and rootstock for these climates; and the physiological-horticultural approach that led to developing means to improve performance of these species under such conditions. The book is ...
