This thorough text covers all aspects of the propagation of plants - both sexual and asexual - with considerable attention given to human (vs natural) efforts to increase plant numbers. It discusses the latest applied techniques and theories of propagation, gives a greater emphasis to the rapidly growing area of tissue culture micropropagation, and explores developments in propagation equipment and facilities. The book is divided into three parts: the first presents the scientific evidence that provides the theoretical framework upon which propagation is based; the second describes in detail, procedures and techniques; and the last provides descriptions of up-to-date propagation methods for important horticultural plants.
