Transformation of Populus — From System Development to Field Plantings
Populus hybrids are being used for woody plant transformation in attempts to increase insect and disease resistance. Refined in vitro micropropagation systems were the initial basis for Populus alba L. X P. grandidentata Michx. transformation system development (Chun et al., 1988b).
