Now available only in paperback, this book has been described as " . . . by far the most comprehensive book on plant tissue culture . . . few publications in this field can compare with this book in terms of subject matter covered and literature surveyed. Overall, the book is a fine achievement for Drs. Bhojwani and Razdan. It also serves the authors' avowed purpose of integrating the theoretical and practical aspects of plant tissue culture. If you like a text and a laboratory manual on plant tissue culture combined, this is obviously a book to be considered seriously" (Plant Science Bulletin). Plant tissue culture has become an invaluable aid in the field of experimental botany and has many practical applications in agriculture and horticulture. In recognition of its importance in basic and applied areas of plant science, many universities have included this subject in undergraduate and postgraduate courses but find that they lack a suitable introductory text. This book has been written primarily to fill that need. Starting with an introductory history, the book covers such practical aspects as laboratory requirements and media preparation. The authors go on to discuss fundamental aspects of cellular totipotency (e.g. production of haploids, diploids and triploids, and raising new genotypes through single cell culture), in vitro approaches to plant breeding, raising high health plants, micropropagation, and techniques of in vitro storage of germplasm. Profusely illustrated with line drawings and original photographs, the book is further enhanced by the inclusion of a complete bibliography.
