Callus cultures of sandalwood (Santalum album L.) were established from shoot segments and shoot tips of trees over 20 years old. Shoots were induced directly from shoot tip callus, while in shoot segments embryoids developed from the callus within 4 weeks after subculturing on to a medium supplemented with gibberellic acid (GA). Embryoids of 4–5 mm were transferred to basal medium or basal medium supplemented with low concentrations of auxin showed plantlet development.
