Micropropagation has become a reliable and routine approach for large-scale rapid plant multiplication, which is based on plant cell, tissue and organ culture on well defined tissue culture media under aseptic conditions. A lot of research efforts are being made to develop and refine micropropagation methods and culture media for large-scale plant multiplication of several number of plant species. However, many forest and fruit tree species still remain recalcitrant to in vitro culture and require highly specific culture conditions for plant growth and development. The recent challenges on plant cell cycle regulation and the presented potential molecular mechanisms of recalcitrance are providing excellent background for understanding on totipotency and what is more development of micropropagation protocols. For large-scale in vitro plant production the important attributes are the quality, cost effectiveness, maintenance of genetic fidelity, and long-term storage. The need for appropriate in vitro plant regeneration methods for woody plants, including both forest and fruit trees, is still overwhelming in order to overcome problems facing micropropagation such as somaclonal variation, recalcitrant rooting, hyperhydricity, polyphenols, loss of material during hardening and quality of plant material. Moreover, micropropagation may be utilized, in basic research, in production of virus-free planting material, cryopreservation of endangered and elite woody species, applications in tree breeding and reforestation.

Dem gro en Bedarf der Studenten und Praktiker nach einem praxisnahen und umfassenden waldbaulichen Lehr- und Fachbuch tr gt dieses bew hrte Werk auch in der vierten, neubearbeiteten Auflage Rechnung. Die von vielen Spezialisten erarbeiteten Grundlagen werden umfassend f r die waldbauliche Entscheidungsfindung ausgewertet. Studenten erhalten mit diesem Werk eine Einf hrung in das waldbauliche Denken und in die fachspezifische Beurteilungsmethodik und erlangen so eine gr ere Sicherheit bei der begr ndeten Ableitung waldbaulicher Schlu folgerungen. Durch die Aufnahme instruktiver Beispiele eignet sich die Darstellung auch gut f r die waldbauliche Fortbildung. Der Praktiker kann durch diese Dokumentation des aktuellen Wissensstandes seine eigene waldbauliche Arbeit berpr fen und Ansatzpunkte zur Verbesserung finden.Bei der Neuauflage wurde insbesondere das Kapitel "Waldgef hrdung durch Immissionen" v llig neu konzipiert.
