PTCM-EJ/7 Embryogenesis The regeneration of plantlets through organogenesis in endosperm cultures became well established as early as 1973 [see 14]; but embryogenesis remained elusive. In fact, until 1980, the only convincing report of endosperm callus which showed embryogenesis is that of a tree species, Santalum album [8]. The differentiated embryoids developed into plantlets, and were successfully transplanted first to garden soil and then to a forest nursery. Plantlets differentiate, through somatic embryogenesis, from the mature endosperm tissue of open-pollinated seeds of Juglans regia [9] on the same medium [46] that supports the regeneration of plantlets from the cotyledons.

The mature endosperm of some taxa, such as Petroselinum hortens [6] and Oryza sativa [7], are reported to regenerate plantlets (see Table 1). Until now, only the plantlets from Santalum album [8] and Juglans regia [9] have been successfully transplanted to soil (Fig. 2). Since the earliest attempt to culture the endosperm of maize in vitro in 1933 [56], it has now been successfully cultured in about 40 species of angiosperms: from immature endosperm in 11 taxa (plantlets in five species; only Asparagus shows embryogenesis), and from mature endosperm PTCM-E3/1 Table I.
