Author(s): S. Weber, R. Horn and W. Friedt
Article Topic(s): Genetics, Propagation
Research Setting(s): Laboratory
Species Referenced: Helianthus strumosus (Paleleaf woodland sunflower),
AbstractEvaluates hybrids of Helianthus annuus and other Helianthus species for their ability to regenerate shoots from apical meristems. Shoot regeneration was greater in hybrids than in the commercial hybrid 'Albena'.
