Pressestimmen'This well thought out book does considerably more than is claimed in the title. It not only takes the reader through a graded series of experimental protocols covering the major techniques used in plant tissue culture, it also provides a good introductory review of each topic.' Trends in Biochemical Sciences '... the authors have written ... a text based on their extensive experience ... directed in the first instance towards students, these topics will prove [to be] of immense value to a much wider range of readers, whatever their previous knowledge.' Cellular and Molecular Biology '... a worthy text and an excellent addition to any plant science laboratory.' John Love, British Society for Developmental Biology Newsletter
