Callus cultures were established from hypocotyls of Eucalyptus alba Reinw. seedlings on White's medium using one of the auxins, indoleacetic acid (IAA) or 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D), and coconut water. Subsequent formation of roots from callus was observed on the same hormone treatments, and shoot formation occurred after approximately 2 months on medium containing coconut water (15 percent v/v) and IAA (1 mg/l). Results contribute to defining optimal conditions for callus growth and production of new plantlets. Forest Sci. 21:242-243.
