Sweetgum (Liquidambar styraciflua) callus grown first on solid medium then placed in liquid suspension culture differentiated adventitious embryos of two types, normal and teratomatous. Numerous adventive embryos differentiated upon the leaves of teratomatous embryoids when transferred to a solid medium. Torpedo stage embryoids were capable of developing into normal plants. Embryogenesis was also observed in cultures on agar medium. Forest Sci. 26:257-260.
