Hybrid Larch (Larix × eurolepis Henry)
Somatic embryogenesis is a useful tool for the gerneration of biomass of fast growing and economically important species like Hybrid larch (Larix x eurolepis). In this chapter we present optimized protocols for the single steps of in vitro processes of somatic embryogenesis (initiation, maturation, germination and cryopreservation), as well as for a successful transfer to the field (including acclimatization) of Hybrid larch.
