Abstract

An efficient regeneration protocol is the prerequisite of genetic modification of eucalyptus. However, adventitious bud differentiation from calli of eucalyptus is difficult because of rapid callus browning. By comparing three cytokinins in tissue culture of Eucalyptus urophylla, it was found that ...

Abstract

The increasing focus on plantation forestry as a renewable source of cellulosic biomass has emphasized the need for tools to study the unique biology of woody genera such as Eucalyptus, Populus and Pinus. The domestication of these woody crops is hampered by long generation times, and breeders are...

Abstract

There are several approaches being investigated to improve the efficiency of biomass conversion into fermentable sugars, including those that engineer the feedstocks to enhance digestibility. In this study it was evaluated the impact of genotype modifications of three mutants of Eucalyptus globulus ...

Abstract

An efficient in vitro regeneration protocol enables mass multiplication, genetic modification and germplasm conservation of desired plants. In vitro plant regeneration was achieved from nodal segments of 18-months-old superior genotypes of Eucalyptus camaldulensis trees through direct organogenesis ...

Abstract

Hardwood forests and plantations are an important economic resource for the forest products industry worldwide and to the international trade of lumber and logs. Hardwood trees are also planted for ecological reasons, for example, wildlife habitat, native woodland restoration, and riparian buffers. ...

Abstract

The advent of high throughput genomic technologies has opened new perspectives in the speed, scale and detail with which one can investigate genes, genomes and complex traits in Eucalyptus species. A genomic approach to a more detailed understanding of important metabolic and physiological...

Abstract

This chapter reviews the concepts of risk in the context of the use of transgenic forest cultivars, and identifies the key features, with respect to risk factors, that differentiate exotic pine [Pinus] plantations from eucalypt [Eucalyptus] plantations and from traditional crop plants and other...

Abstract

The process of genetic modification (GM) involves the direct transfer of DNA into the nucleus of the host genotype. It offers more rapid variety improvement than is possible with conventional breeding. Production of GM trees will be most practicable where the technique can be applied to clones...
