This work, the result of the work of a team from Angers, France, constitutes a study that is complete, solid, accessible, and practical, which only the diversity of the authors (teachers, researchers, practitioners) and their competence could make possible. This new edition takes into account the most recent experiments, particularly in the field of biotechnology and in vitro mycorrhization: to achieve this the editorial team included two professors of the Faculty of Sciences of Angers. Moreover, the applications of in vitro culture are brought up to date. The work presents first of all the scientific aspects (basics, physiology) and technological aspects (set-up of a laboratory, achievement of cultures); this information is completed with mycorrhization and biotechnology. Then the authors develop the horticultural applications, emphasising genetic and hygiene aspects; finally, they tackle agronomic applications of in vitro culture, always pointing out the present constraints. In Vitro Culture and Its Applications in Horticulture addresses readers as diverse as professionals in horticulture, educators, public and private researchers, and the endless ranks of horticultural workers.
This book is unique in its examination of the nature of the adoption of plant tissue culture technology by farmers, and of issues concerning PTC technology at the micro-level.

Society provides human, physical and cultural resources for the growth and development of science and technology. In turn, developments in science and technology influence society. As such, technology and society are obviously in a reciprocal relationship, and all social institutions are affected by technology. Understanding the influence of technology in bringing about social change has assumed greater significance in current sociological research, given the development of technological advances such as information technology and biotechnology. In this context, this book provides an understanding of the influence of the adoption of tissue culture, one of the techniques of biotechnology, on the social organization of production, and of social relations in the production process, including attitudes, knowledge and practices associated with the cultivation of fruit crops, which have been commercially important in the context of increasing demand for fruit. The book deals with one of the most commercially successful biotechnologies, plant tissue culture technology (PTC) in horticulture. The sociological study of the social economy of crops has recently gained significance in studies concerned with science, technology and society (STS) studies. This book is unique in its examination of the nature of the adoption of plant tissue culture technology by farmers, and of issues concerning PTC technology at the micro-level.

Major and exciting changes have taken place recently in various aspects of bio technology and its applications to forestry. Even more exciting is the prospect of major innovations that the entire field of biotechnology holds for plant growth in general. The importance of these developments for the forestry sector is considerable, particu larly since forestry science has not received the kinds of technical and R&D inputs that, say, agriculture has received in the past few decades. Y ct the problems of defor estation as well as stagnation in yields and productivity of existing forests throughout the world are becoming increasingly apparent, with consequences and ecological ef fects that cause growing worldwide concern. Policies for application of existing knowl edge in biotechnology to the field of forestry and priorities for future research and development are, therefore, of considerable value, because it is only through the adop tion of the right priorities and enlightened policies that scientific developments will move along the right direction, leading to improvements in forestry practices through out the world. It was against this backdrop that the Tata Energy Research Institute (TERI) or ganised a major international workshop on the "Applications of Biotechnology in For estry and Horticulture" at New Delhi in January 1988. The present volume covers the proceedings of this international workshop.

Publisher: Pearson College Division
For undergraduate-level courses in Introductory Horticulture and Principles of Crop Production. Written from the point of view of the horticulturalist, this comprehensive introduction to horticulture as a science, art, and business explores the four general areas of horticulture - ornamental horticulture, fruit culture, vegetable culture, and landscape architecture - and covers all the essential principles and practices of horticulture pertaining to indoor and outdoor production. The emphasis throughout is on the underlying science - including current technology - and how it is applied in practical horticulture. * Horticulture as a science, an art, and as a business. * Helps students develop a broad understanding of all the dimensions of the field, showing how they are interconnected, and expanding their view of the opportunities available. * An emphasis on the basic principles and practices of horticulture. * Minimizes regional and national biases. * An exploration of the four general areas of horticulture - Ornamental horticulture, fruit culture, vegetable culture, and landscape architecture. * Introduces students to the full range of horticultural topics. * All the essential pri

Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
Category: Technology & Engineering
This book was written for those individuals who are concerned about the techniques and practices of plant cell cultures for horticultural crops. It was designed to serve as a text and reference for students and professionals in ornamental horticulture, fruit and vegetable crop pro duction, botany, forestry, and other areas of plant science. Research during the last twenty-five years in the area of plant tissue culture has led to many developments and changes in this field. Al though the techniques involved in the manipulation of plant tissue culture are now relatively straightforward, the presentation of these techniques in a short volume for the beginner in the field is generally unavailable. In addition to describing the techniques for establishment and manipulation of specific species, several chapters in this book also provide a brief, general review of important cultural parameters. Spe cific protocols and laboratory procedures may also be found in the appendix. I hope that this presentation of information will be helpful to those individuals wanting to apply plant tissue culture techniques for horticultural crops.
