Instructors and students alike will be delighted by the rich array of responsive plant species and the depth of choice among laboratory exercises that are available in Plant Tissue Culture Concepts and Laboratory Exercises, 2nd edn, edited by Robert N. Trigiano and Dennis J. Gray
The book is refreshingly readable, and the sequence of laboratory exercises leads the reader/student to develop increasing skills and knowledge of the subject matter
The range of subject matter included in the book is extensive
The written protocols do provide timely reminders regarding the benefits of careful labeling of explants and the identities of species/varieties
Laboratory protocols are very complete
Certainly this book will be of practical value in planning and teaching a successful course in plant tissue culture, but it also provides a wealth of general information and will serve as a useful reference for many protocols needed in the daily operations of tissue culture research laboratories. It will be a welcome addition to the library of everyone interested in the subject

The appeal of this practical manual is that it contains very detailed information on how to establish a tissue culture laboratory, from provision of lists of equipment and chemicals and their suppliers, to procedures and protocols for preparing media and carrying out experiments I would recommend this book highly for teachers and researchers in plant tissue culture as a valuable resource for practical plant tissue culture.
