Micropropagation of Orchids by Joseph Arditti

Book Description

This greatly expanded and updated edition of a classic reference work comprises two volumes offering a compendium of methods for multiplying orchids through micropropagation. * A detailed collection of procedures and methods for multiplying orchids, including organ, tissue, and cell culture techniques in vitro * Presents classic techniques that have been in the forefront of orchid propagation since they were first developed in 1949 * Detailed procedures are appended with tables and complete recipes for a large number of culture media * Includes many illustrations, chemical formulas, historical vignettes, and seldom seen illustrations of people, orchids, apparatus and tools "...an excellent resource like its predecessor, ...both informative and captivating, and served as a reminder of why we go to such extremes in our quest to propagate these plants." American Orchid Society, 2009 "...in the sense of its universal value and importance, this Second Edition will undoubtedly be considered a classic, if only because it will serve as a sole and invaluable resource on the subject." Plant Science Bulletin, 2009
