Title: New method of growing tree clones may help scientists in conservation efforts
Author: Shukla, M.R.; Jones, A.M.P.; Sullivan, J.A.; Liu, C.; Gosling, S.; Saxena, P.K.; Institute for Community Engaged Scholarship
Abstract: Researchers developed a technique for growing clones of mature American elm trees, which may improve conservation of this and other endangered tree species. This method involved optimizing the levels of plant hormones in the growing substrate while blocking the action of naturally occurring growth-regulating hormones called auxins.
