Thirty years ago, in vitro propagation was a new technique for producing plants, and Lydiane Kyte’s Plants from Test Tubes became the standard work on the topic. The new fourth edition has been thoroughly revised and updated to reflect the many advances in science and technology, including the five accepted sequential stages of micropropagation. Ten new plants have been added. This in turn has greatly expanded the already extensive bibliography. Among the new topics that have been introduced or expanded on are embryo culture for breeding, somaclonal variation, anther culture, somatic embryogenesis, cryopreservation, and genetic engineering. More ornamental plant examples are given and many new illustrations provided, including a chronology of discoveries in micropropagation.

Lessons for Plant Micropropagation

The observation that plant cells grown in a nutrient solution aseptically have an innate potential to give rise to whole plant led to the foundation for the technique known as tissue culture. The knowledge that thousands of plantlets would be obtained from a bit of plant tissue has paved way to the development of a industry for plant propagation. During the past 40 years enormous efforts and research for refining plant tissue culture techniques has led to the development of a technology. Since the application of micropropagation has multiplied so rapidly in recent years, a brief overview of the technology seems to be appropriate. This overview on micropropagation is concise since the topic has been covered in numerous other books and reviews. The book serves as a ready reckoner or as an instant note for both UG and PG students of various universities. The book starts with an introductory chapter followed by the description on the technique of tissue culture, various methods of micropropagation, and different phases of micropropagation. The book has been concluded by description on the bottleneck of micropropagation viz. soma clonal variations. Readers will find the book to be a comprehensive and valuable resource for studying micropropagation approaches.

Hallmarked as the most successful book of its kind, this remarkably thorough treatment covers all aspects of the propagation of plants—both sexual and asexual—with considerable attention given to human (vs natural) efforts to increase plant numbers. The book presents both the art and science of propagation, and conveys knowledge of specific kinds of plants and the particular methods by which those plants must be propagated. A five-part organization outlines general aspects of plant propagation, seed propagation, vegetative propagation, methods of micropropagation, and propagation of selected plants. For anyone with an interest in how plants are grown and utilized for maintaining and adding enjoyment to human life.

Mitte der 40er Jahre wurden Bakterien und Phagen fUr die Genetik als geeignete Versuchsobjekte entdeckt. Genetische Phanomene, wie Mutation und Rekombination, die bei Eukaryonten schon lange bekannt waren, wurden jetzt auch bei Bakterien und Phagen sieher naeh- wiesen. Man fand neue Phanomene, wie beispielsweise die Lysogenie und die Transduktion, denen spater gro£e Bedeutung zukam. Es wurde klar, da£ Bakterien und Phagen dureh ihre Kleinheit, schnelle Vermehrungsfahigkeit, chemiseh-definierten WuchsansprUehe und die Anwendbar keit vieler Selektivverfahren erstmals eine Chance boten, genetische Vorgange in naher Zukunft auf mole kularem Niveau zu untersuchen und zu interpretieren. Viele neue Methoden wurden entwickelt (z. B. CsCl Gra dientenzentrifugation) oder verfeinert und jetzt analytiseh eingesetzt (z. B. chemische Mutagenese). Hypothesen von au£erordentlich stimulierender Wirkung auf die allgemeine Genetik entstanden, wie die der semi konservativen DNS-Replikation, der Mutation durch Transi tion und Transversion und der Operon-Regulation. So ent wiekelte sich aus der Mikrobengenetik der Nachkriegsjahre, die natUrlich aueh die niederen Pilze einschlie£t, die Molekulargenetik. Viele moderne LehrbUcher der Genetik wetteifern, die ErkenntnisfUlle up to date und Ubersicht lich darzustellen. Aber es gibt kaum BUcher, die ver suchen, den Biologie-Studenten auch experiment ell in das Gebiet der Mikroben- und Molekulargenetik einzufUhren. Das vorliegende Praktikumsbuch solI diese LUcke ver kleinern.
