Abstract


In vitro propagation of Capparis ovata Desf. was conducted using seeds of a Moroccan ecotype, C. ovata Desf. (ENAM green house / origin: Hamria). High seed germination percentage (70%) was achieved on Murashige and Skoog (MS) medium, supplemented with 1.5 mg/l benzylaminopurine + 0.01 mg/l acid indol-3-butyrique + 0.1 mg/l gibberellic acid after a dormancy breaking treatment by gibberellic acid and water.

Keywords: Capparis ovata Desf., seed, In vitro propagation, GA3
