Abstract: Plant regeneration through somatic embryogenesis has been developed in an economically important forest tree, <i style="">Sapindus mukorossi </i>Gaetin. Calli obtained by culturing young leaf explants on MS medium containing growth regulators, 2,4-D (6.7 <img src='/image/spc_char/micro.gif' border=0> <i style="">M</i>) and Kn (9.0 <img src='/image/spc_char/micro.gif' border=0> <i style="">M</i>), when subjected to reduced levels of 2,4-D (2.2<img src='/image/spc_char/micro.gif' border=0> <i style="">M</i>)+Kn (4.6m<i style="">M</i>), produced numerous somatic embryos. Somatic embryos developed into complete plantlets on MS medium devoid of growth regulators. The regenerated plantlets were successfully established in the soil with 90% survival frequency after a few days of acclimatization.
