MICROPROPAGATION ASPECTS OF SEQUOIADENDRON GIGANTEUM JUVENILE AND MATURE CLONES.
Comparative study based on morphogenetic "in vitro" observations and biochemical analysis (phenolic compounds and peroxidases) have been conducted both on juvenile and mature clones of Sequoi adendron giganteum Buchholz. Meristem and microcutting investigations point out important intraclonal variations mainly due to physiological fluctuations of the stock plant whatever its age. For this reason maturation process and its vegetative reproduction consequences cannot be strickly characterized by steady biochemical or morphogenetic capacities references. Moreover further explant evolution may be greatly influenced by "in vitro" culture conditions.
