Monograph deals with studies carried out on different aspects of Heracleum. One of the important aspect of studies is Plant Tissue Culture - an ever dynamic area of Plant Sciences where the core activity of all modes of plant regeneration under in vitro conditions are studied in depth. This comprehensive monograph provides a concise coverage of every topic of on Heracleum from Distribution, classification, agro technology and cytology to plant tissue culture in a simple and lively manner. The plant tissue culture have been dealt in depth would prove to be very useful for the researchers and teachers.
