The African Sandalwood plant (Osyris lanceolata) is a threatened shrub or a small hemi-parasitic tree endemic to East Africa and South African regions, which is being severely affected by fungus, uproot-ing for oil extraction, poor natural regeneration, phenological structures (dioecious), medicinal values, lack of sexual recruitment, habitat loss, anthropogenic and climate factors and life span of its seed is short. It has been found a chllange through application of in situ conservation of natural trees like osyris lanceoleta since rapid human population growth and dramatically change the demands of fuel wood and agriculture investement, the available natural strands of valuable plants of African sandalwood have not been able to meet the demands of the people in world specifically developing countries. How ever, this study via using the advances of plant propagation method it provide new options for conserving and multiplication of Osyris lanceolata species using in vitro culture techniques of using IBA hormone by taking plant material of the targated plant. Propagation of African sandalwood (Osyris lanceolata) by rooting hormone of IBA in non-mist poly-propagator was investigated by taking young stem of osyris lanceoleta fro...Continue Reading
