The book deals with development and/or standardization of protocols for mass multiplication by improvement in seed germination, enhanced rooting of cuttings/rhizome segments and development of tissue culture methods. The study also focussed on phenology (in Taxus only), population studies and regeneration, as well as active principle determination in both the species, namely Taxus baccata subsp. wallichiana (Zucc.) Pilger and Podophyllum hexandrum Royle with the aim of augmenting efforts for the conservation of these species.Further the book also covers the habitat and population study for both the plant to estimate the status of T.baccata and P. hexandrum in studied area. The book aims to address a larger readership in the field of conservation of medicinal plant reseach enriching their knowledgebase.
