Reviews

`... the three volumes provide a comprehensive survey of the state of research, theoretical and practical problems, and of potential and actual applications of cell and tissue cultures in forest and some other woody plants. It will certainly be of great interest to research workers within various theoretical and applied fields of experimental botany and can assist in achieving commercial exploitation of in vitro technologies.'
Biologia Plantarum, (1988)

`Overall, the three volumes form a very comprehensive guide to the application of tissue culture to forestry improvement programmes. ... strongly recommended for inclusion in the library of every tissue culture laboratory.'
Journal of Experimental Botany, 39:203 (1988)
