in vitro tissue culture and native plants

  • Subject: in vitro tissue culture and native plants
  • From: "J. A. Raasch" <jaraasch@facstaff.wisc.edu>

I received a message from a student interested in using in vitro 
tissue culture for propagating a native Wisconsin plant. I have no 
more detail, except that she doesn't want to repeat work already done 
by someone else. I think this sort of work is being done to preserve 
orchids . I'll do some more investigating for her, but in the mean 

(1) Can anyone suggest a plant that is difficult to propagate by seed 
and might be preserved by in vitro vegetative propagation?

(2) Is anyone aware of a review or bibliography that might help this 
student find out what has already been done or might need to be done 
as far as tissue culture of native plants is concerned?

Thank you.
