Pollen wall development in flowering plants.
The outer pollen wall, or exine, is more structurally complex than any other plant cell wall, comprising several distinct layers, each with its own organizational pattern. Since elucidation of theExpand

POLLEN MORPHOLOGY AND THE RELATIONSHIPS OF CIRCAEASTER, OF KINGDONIA, AND OF SARGENTODOXA TO THE RANUNCULALES
The pollen of three monotypic genera, Circaeaster, Kingdonia, and Sargentodoxa has been examined by light and scanning electron microscopy and in the case of the last genus, also by transmissionExpand

Transfer of material through the microspore exine - from the loculus into the cytoplasm.
Our results and those we review indicate that the exine has a great capacity for modifications that enable nutrients to pass through from the anther loculus to the microspore cytoplasm. Avenues ofExpand
