A fourth assembly is being deliberate. The Editor and Organizer needs to thank not just the individuals to this quantity for his or her efforts but in addition the entire different individuals whose mixed efforts made this assembly a superb success.

Alternatively, the embryonic organs may develop at different rates, leading to preco33 cious germination. Such embryos typically form only a root or a shoot but normal rapid germination and growth to a plant does not occur. Another related problem is that somatic embryos often exhibit structural anomalies such as extra cotyledons and poorly developed apical meristems (Ammirato, 1986). All of these problems are likely due to culture conditions and not factors intrinsic to somatic embryos since immature zygotic embryos often suffer similar irregularities when removed from seed and cultured in vitro (Norstog, 1967).
