Somatic Embryogenesis in Woody Perennials

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

Abstract

Since the first reported induction of somatic embryogenesis in carrot cell cultures more than 25 years ago (131, 151), there has been significant progress and numerous reviews (3–6, 8, 17, 25, 35, 40, 41, 48, 51, 98, 103, 123, 126, 128, 135, 145, 166, 167). Consequently, this review will emphasize the more recent work on woody perennials, including conifers and woody monocotyledonous plants. Reviewed elsewhere in this series are somatic embryogenesis in endosperm (Lakshmi Sita), haploids (Rohr, Chen), and the role of ammonia in somatic embryogenesis (Durzan).
