By S. Ramachandran (auth.), Vibha Dhawan (eds.)

Major and interesting adjustments have taken position lately in numerous features of bio­ expertise and its purposes to forestry. much more interesting is the chance of significant ideas that the complete box of biotechnology holds for plant development more often than not. the significance of those advancements for the forestry area is huge, particu­ larly because forestry technology has now not bought the types of technical and R&D inputs that, say, agriculture has obtained long ago few many years. Y ct the issues of defor­ estation in addition to stagnation in yields and productiveness of present forests during the international have gotten more and more obvious, with effects and ecological ef­ fects that reason transforming into around the globe drawback. regulations for software of present knowl­ side in biotechnology to the sphere of forestry and priorities for destiny examine and improvement are, consequently, of substantial price, since it is simply during the adop­ tion of definitely the right priorities and enlightened regulations that clinical advancements will flow alongside the precise path, resulting in advancements in forestry practices via­ out the realm. It was once by contrast backdrop that the Tata power study Institute (TERI) or­ ganised a tremendous foreign workshop at the "Applications of Biotechnology in For­ estry and Horticulture" at New Delhi in January 1988. the current quantity covers the court cases of this foreign workshop.

It would be worthwhile to treat these plants as systems for case studies to evaluate the economics and the problems encountered in developing the protocols for large-scale ill vitro propagation (DBT, 1988). It is only after the gap between the laboratory experiments and the commercial production of tissue culture-raised plants has been bridged for the relevant species that one can think of large-scale use of tissue culture in forestry. The foregoing represents a very brief state-of-the-art account of tissue culture technology with reference to forest trees.

There are little or no elementary data on the collection and evaluation of germ plasm and basic information on breeding biology, let alone the breeding methodology to boost productivity. It is not possible to meet the wood needs through the so-called people's forestry with no scientific and technical inputs. Today, it is not a question of planting a tree at a location for an end-use, but planting the tree at the location for the end-use. The only way out is to treat trees as crops. The earlier we realise and practise this, the better it is for our longrange ecological security.

Thc identification and production of good clones is the first step which has to be followed by intensive selection among a large number of clones involving prolonged trials to identify the really superior clone(s). Based on appropriate protocols for screening, testing and identification of species/provenances, individual elite trees/shrubs have to be identified for applications of tissue culture approaches in order to circumvent specific problems which, in individual cases, are barriers to higher yield.
