Development of strategies towards the cryopreservation of germplasm of Ekebergia capensis Sparrm. : an indigenous species that produces recalcitrant seeds.
The conservation of germplasm of indigenous plant species is vital not only to preserve valuable genotypes, but also the diversity represented by the gene pool. A complicating factor, however, is that a considerable ...
Investigations into the responses of axes of recalcitrant seeds to dehydration and cryopreservation.
Achieving long-term storage of germplasm is critical for the conservation of plant biodiversity. Seed storage practices require that degradative reactions causing ageing be limited. By reducing the water content, cytoplasmic ...
Studies on factors influencing viability after cryopreservation of excised zygotic embryos from recalcitrant seeds of two amaryllid species.
Recalcitrant unlike orthodox seeds do not show a sharp border between maturation and germination and remain highly hydrated and desiccation-sensitive at all developmental and post-harvest stages. In contrast with ...
