Interests: minimal growth of sugarcane in vitro; direct and indirect morphogenesis of sugarcane in vitro, in semi-solid media and temporary immersion RITA® bioreactors; rooting and acclimatisation of tissue culture-derived plantlets.
Most evolutionary ecologists believe that sugarcane first evolved in Papua New Guinea, probably near the Ramu river valley and on adjacent mountains where several component grass species occur today at different clines. Sugarcane entomological scientists write this issue from many different sugarcane countries, Australia, South Africa, Ecuador, Madagascar, Thailand, the U.S, and others. Because sugarcane is a monocot crop that grows differently in some places, different cultivars are quite often unique by area. Also, the use of certain insecticides is often exclusive to the United States. The purpose of this issue usually is to explain how we preserve biological control in countries outside of the United States of America.
