Abstract

Large scale regeneration of superior genotypes of Fagus sylvatica L. (European beech) by conventional propagation methods is not yet feasible. On the other hand, tissue culture technology has been successfully exploited for clonal mass propagation of many other hardwood species. It was the aim of this study to determine the influence of expiant position and age of stock plant on multiplication rate during the initial phase of shoot tip culture of beach.
