 Title    A Review of the Place of in vitro Cell Culture Systems in Studies of Action, Metabolism and Resistance of Biocides Affecting Photosynthesis  
 Abstract    The hom ogeneity, density and axenic nature of cell culture system s have made them an am e­ nable tool for studying many aspects of biocide research; screening, m etabolism , m ode of action and resistance. Cell cultures are "m ulti-hom ogeneous" and each hom ogeneous state may be analog­ ous to different plant parts. Cultures can be hom ogeneously green, hom ogeneously w hite in either a hom ogeneously exponential or stationary phase of growth. Exam ples are be presented showing why no sin gle hom ogeneous state should be envisaged to be analogous to a whole plant in biocide studies. Because of the possibility of more uniform herbicide application, culture systems have a use in isolatin g resistant crop strains, at higher selection pressures and much higher "p lan t" densities than is possib le in the field, with recent successes. Protoplast fusion techniques may allow the transfer of gen etic resistance between related but genetically incom patible crop species.
