Embryo Culture

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


The search for ideal trees with desirable characteristics has been on for many decades with the hope of using those trees to generate progenies or rooted cuttings. These propagules are needed to reforest the vast logged areas and to increase the fiber production. Selection of plus trees has been in progress and the trees have been screened for elite characteristics through progeny testing. Crosses of different ecotypes have been carried out firstly to capture the vigor from heterozygosity of wide crosses and secondly to increase the adaptability of the new genotypes. Inbreeding to obtain homozygous lines for subsequent outcrossing has been attempted to procure total expression from dominant or over-dominant genes. Hybridization of different species has been explored to obtain hybrid vigor and to enlarge the gene pool of a given species.
