Since 1958 plant tissue culture has provided a powerful approach to manipulating morphogenesis under highly controlled conditions and to understanding the role of various extrinsic factors and correlative effects of various tissues in morphogenesis. These studies are not only of academic interest but also of considerable practical importance as they enhance power to manipulate in vitro growth and development, which has a direct bearing on the application of plant tissue culture to plant improvement, propagation and conservation. The substantial advance made in the field of morphogenesis in tissue cultures during the last quarter of the 20th century is the driving force behind the publication of this volume. The book is divided into two sections. The first section includes 11 chapters on the basic aspects, and the second section embodies 5 chapters on the applied aspects of morphogenesis.

`However, I also consider that this book should be read and consulted widely by researchers, teachers and students involved in the biological sciences and agriculture.' Plant Pathology, 50 (2001)
