of Woody Trees
and Fruits

edited by S. Mohan Jain
and Katsuaki Ishii

Featured topics cover a wide range, including:

  • Tropical forest and fruit trees for paper or food supply
  • Prunus species for local craft bark production
  • Micropropagation of Fagus, Eucalyptus, Acacia, Aegle and fruit trees
  • Light Quality
  • Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungi
  • Pathogen Elimination
  • Molecular Markers
  • Bioreactor
  • Photoautotrophism
  • Thin Cell Layer
  • In Vitro Germplasm Conservation

The key technology for biomass production of woody species is propagation via micropropagation. Recent development of in vitro culture techniques has made it possible to commercially propagate useful trees, both forest and fruit trees.

Micropropagation of Woody Trees and Fruits provides comprehensive information on micropropagation of economically important forest and fruit trees, which is usually available in scattered literature.

These contents are extremely useful to researchers and students!
