The effects of two methods of cryopreservation involving chemical vitrification and air desiccation) were studied on isolated embryonic axes of A. hypogaea. Vitrification with PVS2 and desiccation in a laminar flow cabinet resulted in high levels (70-90%) of whole plant recovery after cryopreservation. A desiccation protocol based on 1h exposure of explants to the air flow was successfully applied to six wild species of section Extranervosae, resulting in recovery levels of 70-90% after liquid nitrogen treatment.
