Anthers of oak, beech, and horse-chestnut were cultured on modified MS-media or WPM with different BAP and 2,4D combinations. On these media embryos (horse-chestnut) or calli (oak and beech) developed. On media with 2.5 µM BAP the calli were transformed into embryos. On media without hormones oak and horse chestnut plants developed, which were potted in soil in the greenhouse.
