Book Description

Concise definitions and descriptions to more than 1,000 terms—illustrated and fully referenced

The Dictionary of Plant Tissue Culture is a user-friendly A-to-Z resource for the technical terms that apply to plant cell, tissue, and organ culture. Filled with illustrations of key concepts and references to up-to-date textbooks, papers, and reviews, this handy guidebook defines both the terms that come from plant tissue culture, and those that originate from plant anatomy, genetics, stress physiology, growth regular research, microbiology, and plant pathology. It’s an essential resource for anyone involved in tissue culture or using plant tissue culture systems for plant cloning, secondary metabolic production, plant pathology, and genetic manipulations.

The Dictionary of Plant Tissue Culture is an invaluable reference tool for teachers, students, and researchers working in basic and applied plant tissue culture. The book’s entries are cross-referenced where appropriate, with references mainly to general textbooks on plant anatomy, biochemistry and histochemistry, developmental biology, genetics, microbiology, micropropagation, plant breeding, plant biotechnology, plant pathology and plant tissue culture. From ABA (abscisic acid) to zygotic embryo, this concise glossary will save you valuable time in your efforts to find concise definitions and descriptions to more than 1,000 terms.
