Fast Growing Poplars in the Development of Plant Micropropagation System Based on Plant-Produced Ethylene Action

Zcaron , S. Kuusienè & Scaron
Representatives of poplar genus, such as European aspen (Populus tremula L.) and its fast¬growing hybrids, are recognized as being among the most suitable tree species for short rotation coppicing in Northern Europe. In vitro culture is one of the tools for fast propagation of selected aspen genotypes. The present study was designed to test if the conditions suitable for increased accumulation of plant¬produced gas inside a culture vessel could contribute to commercially desirable changes in...
