Acclaimed since its first appearance as the most practical guide to plant tissue culture and widely adopted as a textbook, this standard work is now even better This expanded edition introduces new developments in biotechnology, such as genetic engineering and cell culture It provides detailed recipes for propagating plants from than 30 families It explains clearly how to set up a propagating laboratory, from a hobbyist s kitchen to an elaborate commercial enterprise....

Plants from Test Tubes: An Introduction to Micropropagation Reviews
Answers a lot of question I had about tissue culture
This book is an overview, but should not be considered a text to set up a micropropagation lab as the author suggests. A better source, though now a bit dated, is Arditti. Overall, for the layman, looking at the general process of micropropagation, it is worth reading.
Well written very informative
This is a great book about micropropagation. I like the microscope section and the section on genetic engineering. I am teaching myself botany and bought this book to learn about cloning a plant. I have not done any of the tissue cultures as the chemicals are expensive. It is a great book that even includes historical information about botany and the light microscope.
The textbook we use at SUNY ESF (the newer version, but is mostly the same), but it is still a pretty great intro to plant cell culture.
Very interesting and informative. Not 1 dull page in this book. Obviously I am looking at a summer project when the weather is more gentle and plants are more abundant. But I do recommend the read especially for preppers.
the text seemed as though it was written to be accompanied by a lab class, as very little information was given as to techniques of explant creation and selection were given. Great effort was given to definitions, but I would have liked to have seen more details of the meanings of the terms defined. A broad scope of tissue culture is given, but in a condensed format, suitable for, say, a three-month course (with an accompanying lab course).
