Abstract

Shoot induction frequency for the leguminous tree Swartzia madagascariensis Desv. was higher on MS and WP media than on B5. Explants incubated on media solidified with agar produced more shoots with a lower tendency to hyperhydricity than explants on agarose or Gelrite media. Maximum shoot induction was obtained with an agar-solidified MS medium containing 2.2 μM benzyladenine (37 shoots/explant). Shoots rooted after transfer to half-strength MS medium supplemented with 26.8 μM naphthaleneacetic acid.
