Abstract

The Great Indian desert is one of the most thickly populated deserts of the world and this exerts a great pressure on its natural resources for fuel, fodder, timber and medicinal plants.  This has resulted in sharp depletion of natural population of plants, particularly already thinly scattered tree species. Plant tissue culture techniques have been used to propogate a large number of plant species of the region.  The results obtained on Prosopis species by our group and on other plants by various workers are discussed in the light of immediate need and impact of new technology to fulfil the future requirement.
