Surface disinfested nodal and shoot-tip sections of chinkapin oak (Quercus muehlenbergii Engelm.), obtained from adult or juvenile source, when cultured on WFM supplemented with BA or kinetin (1.0 -5.0 mg l-1) produced greater number of axillary shoots per explant and shoot lengths than MS medium. Nodal and shoot-tip explants cultured in WPM containing cytokinins, BA or kinetin (0.1 - 5.0 mg l“) resulted in greater number of axillary shoots than media containing auxins, 2,4-D or NAA (1.0 - 5.0 mg l-1). In vitro grown shoot explants cultured in WFM shoot multiplication medium containing thidiazuron did not produce axillary shoots. Microshoots when cultured in WFM plus NAA or IBA (0.1 -2.0 mg l-1), or subjected to IBA (0.5 mg l-1) pulse treatment (0, 5, 10 or 15 min.) did not root.
