Abstract

Tissue culture techniques have profound importance in mass propagation of various commercial crops in practice as in well known fruit tree rootstocks, a few vegetable and especially ornamental plants as well as some undomesticated plant species. Herbaceous species are somewhat easier to propagate compared to woody ones by tissue culture techniques. These techniques have not affectively applied to native plant species due to economical concerns although so many native plant species have been under threat and therefore they have been facing with extinction in all over the world. Human interferences is the main cause of the extinction of wild species especially in highly populated areas as it is the case in Marmara, Aegean and Coastal Mediterranean regions of Turkey because of new settlements, infrastructural works, overgrazing and uncontrolled collections. Thus, a big number of wild plant species are disappearing every year. Tissue culture techniques have merit value to propagate the endangered wild plant species to release the encountering pressure on these plants Keywords: Tissue culture, endangered species, sustainability
