Nursery Handling of Propagules

Part of the Forestry Sciences book series (FOSC, volume 24-26)


Propagation of trees by conventional means tends to be highly geared to local requirements, with commercial firms often specializing on certain species. This is especially exemplified by the horticultural tree nursery industry. With the development and refinement of micropropagation techniques, a new means of propagation is available, especially for species that are difficult to propagate by conventional methods.
