Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: In the second edition of Plant Propagation Concepts and Laboratory Exercises, we have combined the first edition chapters 36: Sexual Reproduction in Angiosperms and 37: Breeding Horticultural Plants into the present single chapter Sexual Reproduction and Breeding. These topics are so closely related that we believe that concepts are best presented as one unit. In addition to combining the aforementioned chapters, we have added some high-resolution microscopic pictures of mitotic events that are comparable to the line drawings depicting the various phases of mitosis. We have maintained some black and white figures for clarity of presentation. Lastly, we have included in this edition a simple laboratory exercise involving observation and frequency of mitotic phases in cells of onion root tips as seen in longitudinal sections on prepared slides.
