Thirty years ago, in vitro propagation was a new technique for producing plants, and Lydiane Kyte’s Plants from Test Tubes became the standard work on the topic. The new fourth edition has been thoroughly revised and updated to reflect the many advances in science and technology, including the five accepted sequential stages of micropropagation. Ten new plants have been added. This in turn has greatly expanded the already extensive bibliography. Among the new topics that have been introduced or expanded on are embryo culture for breeding, somaclonal variation, anther culture, somatic embryogenesis, cryopreservation, and genetic engineering. More ornamental plant examples are given and many new illustrations provided, including a chronology of discoveries in micropropagation.

The observation that plant cells grown in a nutrient solution aseptically have an innate potential to give rise to whole plant led to the foundation for the technique known as tissue culture. The knowledge that thousands of plantlets would be obtained from a bit of plant tissue has paved way to the development of a industry for plant propagation. During the past 40 years enormous efforts and research for refining plant tissue culture techniques has led to the development of a technology. Since the application of micropropagation has multiplied so rapidly in recent years, a brief overview of the technology seems to be appropriate. This overview on micropropagation is concise since the topic has been covered in numerous other books and reviews. The book serves as a ready reckoner or as an instant note for both UG and PG students of various universities. The book starts with an introductory chapter followed by the description on the technique of tissue culture, various methods of micropropagation, and different phases of micropropagation. The book has been concluded by description on the bottleneck of micropropagation viz. soma clonal variations. Readers will find the book to be a comprehensive and valuable resource for studying micropropagation approaches.

T. A. Browns "Gentechnologie fA1/4r Einsteiger" hat sich in mehreren Auflagen international als StandardeinfA1/4hrung in die Genklonierung und DNA-Analyse etabliert. Das Grundlagenlehrbuch setzt nur wenig Kenntnisse in Molekularbiologie und Genetik voraus und erlAutert in klarer Sprache sowohl die fundamentalen Prinzipien der wichtigsten gentechnologischen Methoden als auch die immer breiter werdende Palette ihrer Anwendungen. Die groAe Bedeutung der Gentechnologie fA1/4r die Grundlagenforschung und fA1/4r neue Entwicklungen in Biotechnologie und Medizin wird klar herausgearbeitet. Aoeber 250 zweifarbige Illustrationen erleichtern das VerstAndnis des Stoffes und machen die Konzepte und Arbeitstechniken der Gentechnologen anschaulich. Die neue Auflage ist vollstAndig A1/4berarbeitet und enthAlt zwei neue Kapitel. Eines prAsentiert die Methoden, mit denen man ganze Genome sequenziert, und beschreibt, was man aus den gewonnenen Sequenzinformationen ablesen kann. Das zweite widmet sich den Anwendungen der Gentechnologie in der Gerichtsmedizin - ein spannendes und aufschlussreiches Beispiel des Einsatzpotenzials der DNA-Analyse. Der groAen Bedeutung der Polymerasekettenreaktion (PCR) entsprechend wird diese Technik jetzt in einem frA1/4hen Abschnitt des Buches behandelt und durchgehend stArker berA1/4cksichtigt.

Hallmarked as the most successful book of its kind, this remarkably thorough treatment 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. The book presents both the art and science of propagation, and conveys knowledge of specific kinds of plants and the particular methods by which those plants must be propagated. A five-part organization outlines general aspects of plant propagation, seed propagation, vegetative propagation, methods of micropropagation, and propagation of selected plants. For anyone with an interest in how plants are grown and utilized for maintaining and adding enjoyment to human life.

Nunmehr liegt die 2., grA1/4ndlich A1/4berarbeitete und aktualisierte Auflage des gut eingefA1/4hrten Lehrbuches von Hans-Walter Heldt, einem der renommiertesten deutschen Pflanzenbiochemiker, vor. Der Autor spannt den Bogen von der Photosynthese A1/4ber PrimAr- und SekundArstoffwechsel sowie Phytohormone bis hin zu aktuellen Themen wie Molekulargenetik und Gentechnik. Die Pflanzenbiochemie ist auch auf vielen Feldern der angewandten Forschung von groAer Bedeutung, etwa in der Pflanzenzucht und Biotechnologie sowie der Wirkstoff-Forschung an Pflanzen. Neueste wissenschaftliche Erkenntnisse fanden Eingang in dieses Buch, und an vielen Stellen zeigt der Autor die Grenzen unseres derzeitigen Wissens auf. Kompetenz und AktualitAt, klare Darstellung und gute VerstAndlichkeit - das sind die Kennzeichen dieses Lehrbuches. Mit sorgfAltig erstellten zweifarbigen Abbildungen erfA1/4llt es einen hohen didaktischen Anspruch und reiht sich unter die besten Biochemie-LehrbA1/4cher. ((Foto wie auf 1. Auflage, liegt sicherlich in Produktion als Film)) Prof. Dr. Hans-Walter Heldt, Jahrgang 1934, leitet die Abteilung fA1/4r Biochemie der Pflanze am Albrecht-von-Haller-Institut fA1/4r Pflanzenwissenschaften der UniversitAt GAttingen. Seine Forschungsinteressen gelten dem Photosynthese-Stoffwechsel hAherer Pflanzen und dem Metabolitentransport. FA1/4r seine Arbeiten wurde er 1993 mit dem Max-Planck-Forschungspreis ausgezeichnet. Dozentenstimmen zur 1. Auflage: ”Das Buch hat den Mut, komplexe Sachverhalte einfach darzustellen und notfalls auf die letzten Feinheiten und Varianten zu verzichten. Trotzdem bleibt die Darstellung korrekt, und sie ist auf dem aktuellen Stand. Das ist genau das, was die Studenten brauchen.>Pflanzenbiochemie aus einem GuA; in der Tiefe und in der Breite mit groAem VerstAndnis fA1/4r Regulation und Funktionen in der ganzen Pflanze.
