Influence of Explant Source on in Vitro Axillary Shoot Formation in Oak (Quercus robur L.) Seedlings

  • H. Volkaert
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSA, volume 186)


In this study, the possibility of propagating juvenile oak seedlings in vitro was investigated with special emphasis on the influence of shoot development and expiant position on propagation efficiency.
