Hallmarked as the most successful book of its kind, this remarkably thorough book 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 latest applied techniques and theories of propagation are discussed. A greater emphasis to the rapidly growing area of tissue culture micropropagation is addressed. Explores developments in propagation equipment and facilities. Expands chapters on cutting-propagation to include research on adventitious root production. Techniques for rooting cuttings are provided.
