Somatic embryogenesis is a fascinating natural phenomenon where the embryo is formed from a single vegetative (somatic) cell instead of gametic fusion. It can occur in vitro and be used for cloning. Coconut cloning (micropropagation) has been explored for 40+ years with little success. This book (PhD thesis) represents exciting research on the issue, achieving over three times higher efficiency.
