ABSTRACT
Rubus chamaemorus L. and Rubus arcticus L. are rare plant species in a particular
region of the Russian Federation, the preservation of these species is of great
importance for maintaining biodiversity. At the same time R. chamaemorus and
R. arcticus are a source of biologically active substances. In vitro propagation of
R. chamaemorus and R. arcticus is an important instrument for the preservation and reproduction of economically valuable plants in which tissue is freed from all kinds of infections and remains unchanged genetic structure of the plant organism. For an introduction to culture in vitro R. chamaemorus used shoots isolated from male and female plants for introducing young R. arcticus used metameres 0,5 cm long was found that the induction of morphogenesis R. arcticus must use MS medium supplemented with BA 1,0 mg l-1 for R. chamaemorus Quoirin and Lepoivre medium supplemented with BA 1,5 mg l-1. The optimal pH levels at 5,2 for micropropagation R. chamaemorus and 4,9 for R. arcticus.
