Micropropagation of Orchids

by

Micropropagation of Orchids Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This greatly expanded and updated edition of a classic reference work comprises two volumes offering a compendium of methods for multiplying orchids through micropropagation.

  • A detailed collection of procedures and methods for multiplying orchids, including organ, tissue, and cell culture techniques in vitro

  • Presents classic techniques that have been in the forefront of orchid propagation since they were first developed in 1949

  • Detailed procedures are appended with tables and complete recipes for a large number of culture media

  • Includes many illustrations, chemical formulas, historical vignettes, and seldom seen illustrations of people, orchids, apparatus and tools

“… an excellent resource like its predecessor, …both informative and captivating, and served as a reminder of why we go to such extremes in our quest to propagate these plants.” American Orchid Society, 2009

“…in the sense of its universal value and importance, this Second Edition will undoubtedly be considered a classic, if only because it will serve as a sole and invaluable resource on the subject.” Plant Science Bulletin, 2009

Book News Annotation:

Arditti (emeritus, developmental and cell biology, U. of California, Irvine), a specialist on orchid biology and propagation, has carried out an extensive revision and updating of his classic guide, including a more extensive history of the practice of orchid micropropagation. The numerous new methods published since the first edition of 1993 are presented in context of the specific genera. An initial chapter describes techniques and procedures and a concluding one discusses various issues, including culture conditions, media components, applications of orchid tissue culture, and negative aspects of micropropagation. Appendices provide information on supplies, equipment, terms, and reagents, with lists of sources for supplies and equipment, websites, and a glossary, among other helpful sources. The methods used for specific genera fill the majority of the two-volume resource, with each entry including a full bibliography, tables, and descriptions of the various types of media and propagation techniques, issues, and results.

Synopsis:

This greatly expanded and updated edition of this classic reference work provides the user with comprehensive details of all procedures for propagating orchids through the culture of tissues in vitro (micropropagation).

Presented in two volumes, the book opens with a detailed and illustrated historical section which covers the discoveries, developments, and people which made micropropagation possible. The next section discusses in detail the principles and components of culture media which are used in micropropagation. The main component of the two volumes, however, is the third section. This comprises the detailed procedures for the culture of over 100 orchid genera. Classical, established, and the very latest techniques of clonal propagation of organs, tissues, and cells are presented. Every one of the listed methods includes tables of complete recipes for a wide range of culture media.

This new edition will continue to be the key reference for all those interested in and involved in orchid micropropagation, growing, and production.

Synopsis:

Dr Joseph Arditti majored in floriculture as an undergraduate and received his doctorate from the University of Southern California in 1965. After serving as a lecturer for one year at the University of Southern California, he accepted a faculty position at the University of California, Irvine in 1966 where he taught General Botany, Horticulture, and Plant Physiology while engaging in research on various aspects of orchid biology in the US, Indonesia, Singapore, and Malaysia. Dr Arditti retired in 2001 and is now Professor Emeritus. He continues to write and travel worldwide to lecture at scientific meetings and to orchid groups. He is acknowledged to be one of the world's leading experts on orchid biology and propagation.
