Tissue Culture Application to Forest Pathology and Pest Control

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


The use of tissue culture methodologies for studies of pathogen physiology, host vs. pathogen interrelationships and disease resistance has a short but productive history in agronomy and horticulture (23, 44, 45). The very recent applications of these procedures for forest trees show tremendous potential to circumvent some of the difficult logistical problems of studying disease in vivo. Technical and informational gains made in other plant sciences are now being examined by forest pathologists to supplement and accelerate traditional breeding programs (60, 66).
