How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

- Project: Endophytes in Prunus avium tissue culture
Key message Wavy grain, a rare figure type of wood, leads to highly priced timber in Acer pseudoplatanus L. The influence of this trait on growth performance and its causes are not known. Analyzed wavy and straight grain sycamore maple progenies show comparable growth performance in a field trial. Stability of wavy grain after vegetative propagatio...
Against the background of the planning of the multifunc-tional, inclusive community garden "Ludwigsgarten Braunschweig", it was worked out which contents should be included in the term "urban green knowledge". Legal and insurance requirements, urban planning aspects, botanical and horticultural knowledge of plants, knowledge of urban ecology includ...
Endophytic bacteria have been increasingly in the focus of research projects during the last decade. This has changed the view on bacteria in plant tissue culture and led to the differentiation between artificially introduced contaminations and naturally occurring endophytes with neutral, negative, or positive impact on the plant propagation proces...
A detailed picture of the endophytic bacterial community structure on phylum and genus level in in vitro shoot cultures of sixteen Juglans genotypes including Juglans regia, Juglans nigra and mainly Juglans hybrids was generated by using culture-dependent and culture-independent methods. A total of eight endophytic bacterial strains with a high ide...
The influence of a four-day dark treatment and a 48 h IBA pulse on in vitro root formation of Prunus avium microshoots was examined. Both treatments led to significantly higher rooting percentages in the majority of the six genotypes. While the IBA pulse led to a disproportional growth of roots compared to shoots, the plantlets under the dark treat...
Endophytic bacteria occurring in plant in vitro cultures have often been described as contaminants, although these are generally present in all plant tissues, often with plant growth promoting effects. The effects of bacterial endophytes in different in vitro culture phases and in different plant organs of Prunus avium were studied. In a previous s...
The endophytic bacterial communities of six Prunus avium L. genotypes differing in their growth patterns during in vitro propagation were identified by culture-dependent and culture-independent methods. Five morphologically distinct isolates from tissue culture material were identified by 16S rDNA sequence analysis. To detect and analyze the uncult...
Erarbeitung biotechnologischer Methoden zur Identifizierung, Erhaltung, Vermehrung und Nutzung selektierter Riegelahorn-Bäume für die Wertholzproduktion. Development of biotechnological methods for the identification, conservation, propagation and use of selected maple trees with wavy grain for timber production.
