These methods include tables of complete recipes for a wide range of culture media. Chemical formulae, historical vignettes, and seldom seen illustrations of people, orchids, apparatus, and tools are included in this updated edition.From the Back Cover:
This greatly expanded and updated edition of this classic reference work provides the user with comprehensive details of all procedures for propagating orchids through the culture of tissues in vitro (micropropagation).
Presented in two volumes, the book opens with a detailed and illustrated historical section which covers the discoveries, developments, and people which made micropropagation possible. The next section discusses in detail the principles and components of culture media which are used in micropropagation. The main component of the two volumes, however, is the third section. This comprises the detailed procedures for the culture of over 100 orchid genera. Classical, established, and the very latest techniques of clonal propagation of organs, tissues, and cells are presented. Every one of the listed methods includes tables of complete recipes for a wide range of culture media.
This new edition will continue to be the key reference for all those interested in and involved in orchid micropropagation, growing, and production.
