Abstract

The ability of “in vitro” cloning in many trees is a function of the degree of juvenility of the explanted tissues. Unfortunately, little is known about the physiological and genetic mechanisms that control the differences between the juvenile and mature state of cells, tissues or the plant (Bonga, 1987).
