2); b) Plantlets forced to develop by destroying the apical growing point of vegetative plants (gouging) and stimulating growth of lateral buds; c) Plantlets (propagules) formed instead of flowers and fruitlets by plant treatment with chlorflurenol at flower initiation (HEPTON, 2003).
Dispersion of organisms by water flow in macrophyte mats may increase the delivery of propagules in sites far from the area where the organisms originated (Barrat-Segretain, 1996).
This review will cover published peer-reviewed articles of tree species during the last two decades, regardless of continents focusing on the dilemmas of seed collection from wood species to capture high quality and genetically diverse propagules in order to establish self-sustaining and evolutionarily adaptive tree populations.
[20]; this inoculum contained roots and ectomycorrhizal propagules of the fungi Amanita muscaria, Amanita sp., and Suillus luteus, which was labeled as Plantation-Soil inoculum (PS) and is traditionally used in local nurseries (34 infective propagules per g); this type of inoculum is used worldwide [1, 21, 22].
Among the main limitations of roots formation we found the ontogenetic age of propagules, determining factor in the formation of adventitious roots, where, in general, propagules with a higher degree of juvenility tend to have higher rooting and vigor (XAVIER et al., 2009; WENDLING et al., 2010).
