EFFECT OF AUXINS ON CLONAL PROPAGATION OF SYZYGIUM TRAVANCORICUM GAMBLE. A CRITICALLY ENDANGERED SPECIES OF THE SOUTHERN WESTERN GHATSA. Hussain and C. Anilkumar
Vegetative propagation through stem cuttings and air layering in syzygium travancoricum was tested. The highest rooting of 90% was achieved with the use of IBA 1000 ppm from tender stem cuttings of 15-20 years old plants while air layering was found to be 100% by the use of IBA 1000 ppm. Thus the standardized clonal propagation method is recommended as potential methods for multiplication, conservation and management of these endangered and red listed tree resources from untimely endangerment for the posterity.
