From the centre of origin it has spread to almost in all tropical countries 40 North and South of the equatorial line. Remarkable diversity of bananas and plantains within India and other parts of the globe has caused a lot of confusion among the taxonomists and growers due to many synonyms.
For instance the famous commercial cultivar 'Poovan' has more than 27 synonyms in India alone. Banana being a natural hybrid of two putative parents Musa acuminata and M.
balbisiana, the taxonomy of banana has become more difficult. From the time Linnaeaus described Musa spp.

Production of quality planting materials is fast becoming an important input in disease management programmes especially in production of disease/virus free plants. In addition, efficient plant regeneration systems are fast becoming important for in vitro manipulations and transgenic pathways for crop improvement.
In the present volume, the available information on the micropropagation and plant regeneration technologies developed for vegetables, ornamentals and tuber crops are comprehensively covered with respect to individual crops by experienced scientists. Information on various explants sources and media combinations are also presented in a concise form.
