Addressing several specialized areas generically termed biotechnology, Plant Tissue Culture, Development and Biotechnology uses a broad range of species that are studied via laboratory exercises. Based on the editors’ previous textbooks Plant Development and Biotechnology and Plant Tissue Culture Concepts and Laboratory Exercises – Second Edition, the book provides detailed perspectives and hands-on training in this rather diverse field. It concentrates on plant development and its application in biotechnology, while maintaining as broad of a base as possible. Supporting laboratory exercises are provided.

  • Integrates traditional plant sciences with recent advances plant tissue culture, development and biotechnology
  • Includes critical thinking questions, concept boxes introducing important ideas in the chapters, and procedure boxes giving precise instruction for experiments
  • New chapters, concepts, and laboratory exercises provide information on germplasm preservation, plant growth regulators, proper microscope use with digital photography, embryo rescue, micropropagation of roses, haploid cultures, and transformation of meristems
  • Laboratory exercises provide a hands-on approach in illustrating various topics of discussion, featuring step-by-step procedures, anticipated results, and a list of materials needed to perform them
  • Special topics highlight copyrights, patents, legalities, and trade secrets in biotechnology
