Abstract

Sections of the thallus of the brown alga Ecklonia radiata (C. Ag.) J. Ag. were surface sterilised for tissue culture by dipping in 70% ethanol for 30 s, followed by sterile deionised water for 30 min. A high percentage of aseptic viable explants could be obtained using this treatment, and growth in vitro was initiated.
