Title: Regeneration of plants from Fraxinus nigra Marsh. hypocotyls

Author: Beasley, Rochelle R.; Pijut, Paula M.;

Date: 2013

Source: HortScience. 48(7): 887-890.

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: Fraxinus nigra Marsh. (black ash) is a native North American hardwood tree species that is ecologically important and has ethnobotanical significance to American Indian communities of the eastern United States. Black ash has immature embryos at seed set, combined with complex stratification requirements, making natural regeneration difficult. This, combined with the threat and devastation being caused by the emerald ash borer, makes an in vitro adventitious shoot regeneration and rooting protocol imperative for mass propagation, conservation, and genetic improvement of this species.

Keywords: adventitious shoots, black ash, rooting, shoot organogenesis, vitro
