SUMMARY

Induction of roots and shoots from leaves of Plantago lanceolata L. using IAA is a very effective technique which could be extended to large scale cloning for vegetative propagation and assay procedures in genecological studies on this and other species. In P. lanceolata, there were no differences between populations from contrasting habitats with regard to proportion of leaves producing roots and shoots. There was a high correlation between zinc tolerance measured on rooted leaves and on equivalent rooted tillers.
