The pathogenesis of this condition is not completely understood, although DVAs are thought to form during intrauterine life as a consequence of abnormal embryogenetic processes.
Somatic embryogenesis has been described for loblolly pine and could be the most productive propagation method, but it is still unclear how to fully control the embryogenetic process (PULLMAN; JOHNSON, 2002; SILVEIRA et al., 2004), it has low initiation frequencies and sometimes, limited success in the maturation of embryogenic tissue into cotyledonary somatic embryos (MONTALBAN et al.
Other morphogenetic callus proliferating from seed tissues showed a tendency to regenerate following the embryogenetic way, producing the differentiation of somatic embryos, unfortunately these somatic embryos failed to develop become necrotic and died (ENCINA et al., unpublished).
