Plant Propagation Concepts and Laboratory Exercises, Second Edition.pdf
This new edition integrates modern approaches for studying plant molecular biology and biotechnology into the framework of traditional plant propagation. It emphasizes the principles of plant propagation applied in both temperate and tropical environments. In addition to presenting the essential fundamentals, the book features protocols and practices that students will be able to apply in laboratory and field experiences. This text helps readers choose the best methods for plant propagation including proper media and containers; describes techniques such as budding, cutting, layering, grafting, and cloning; and addresses various propagation challenges.
