  1. Somatic Embryogenesis in <em>Eucalyptus grandis</em>

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Forestry Journal
    Culture conditions for the in vitro propagation of Eucalyptus grandis via somatic embryogenesis were investigated. Induction and maturation of somatic embryos, production of plantlets and hardening-off procedures are detailed.
  2. Establishment of Cell Suspension Cultures of <em>Eucalyptus grandis</em> and <em>E. grandis x camaldulensis</em>

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Forestry Journal
    A protocol was devised for the induction and maintenance of cell suspension cultures of Eucalyptus grandis. This involved the microscopical categorisation of the various regions within heterogenous callus masses, the assessment of competence of each callus type in a liquid...
  3. Field Performance of Micropropagated and Macropropagated <em>Eucalyptus</em> Hybrids

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Forestry Journal
    Plantlets derived, via both in vitro micropropagation and from rooted cuttings, from seven different Eucalyptus hybrid genotypes were assessed for their field performance in Kwambonambi, KwaZulu Natal. Tree survival, height, mean annual increment, diameter at breast height and size uniformity...
  4. Effect of Anti-Fungal Agents on <em>In Vitro</em> Cultures of <em>Eucalyptus grandis</em>

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Forestry Journal
    Young, small shoot explants of E. grandis were multiplied in the presence of 0,5 and 1 g/ℓ benomyl, 0,25 and 0,5 g/ℓ chlorothalonil, 0,36 and 0,72 g/ℓ propamocarb hydrochloride and 0,002 5 g/ℓ Amphotericin B. The multiplied shoots were then...
  5. Micropropagation Via Axillary Bud Proliferation from Seedlings and Juvenile Shoots of <em>Pinus patula</em> Schiede <em>et</em> Deppe

    Micropropagation Via Axillary Bud Proliferation from Seedlings and Juvenile Shoots of <em>Pinus patula</em> Schiede <em>et</em> Deppe

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: The Southern African Forestry Journal
    Axillary bud induction protocols were developed for Pinus patula Schiede et Duppe juvenile shoots and seedling explants. Investigations involved the establishment of conditions for the highest in vitro shoot multiplication and in vitro and ex-vitro rooting frequencies. The developed protocols...
  6. Applications of <em>in vitro</em> methods to <em>Eucalyptus</em> germplasm conservation

    Applications of <em>in vitro</em> methods to <em>Eucalyptus</em> germplasm conservation

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: The Southern African Forestry Journal
    For forestry species that require large tracts of land for conservation stands, in vitro storage methods such as minimal growth cultures or cryopreservation can provide a cost- and space-effective ex situ conservation approach. As protocols for the micropropagation of Eucalyptus...
  7. Deployment strategies to maximise value recovery from tree improvement: The experience of two South African companies

    Deployment strategies to maximise value recovery from tree improvement: The experience of two South African companies

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: The Southern African Forestry Journal
    Current strategies for deployment of improved material from the tree breeding programmes of two South Mrican forestry companies are reviewed for all commercial species, including both hardwoods and softwoods. How high site variability and propagation constraints restrict this are examined...
