Abstract:

Dendrocalamus strictus Nees, commonly known as 'Male Bamboo', is a crucial non-timber forest resource with multifaceted applications ranging from construction to traditional medicine. However, the species faces numerous challenges including genetic variability constraints, susceptibility to pests, and habitat degradation. Plant tissue culture techniques present a promising avenue for addressing these challenges and enhancing the genetic traits of D. strictus. The potential applications of plant tissue culture techniques for the genetic improvement of D. strictus. Specifically, it delves into methodologies such as micropropagation, somatic embryogenesis, and genetic transformation, highlighting their relevance in overcoming the limitations of conventional breeding methods. These techniques offer precise control over the regeneration of plants from selected elite genotypes, enabling rapid multiplication of desirable traits and conservation of genetic diversity.
