Tissue Culture Project

At the beginning of the term each group of students selected 5 bryophyte samples to culture.  Explants included spores, leaf/stem fragments, gemmae, and calyptrae.  Students  are recording their observations to determine the developmental stages different propagules go through during asexual reproduction.
