Secondary Pollen Presentation in Angiosperms and its Biological Significance
Secondary pollen presentation is the developmental relocation of pollen from the anthers onto another floral organ which then functions as the pollen presenting organ for pollination. Nine differentExpand

Pollen-Pistil Interactions
Pollination is a process that is vital for the survival not only of flowering plants, but also for mankind. Yet human efforts to manipulate the reproduction of crop plants have been largelyExpand

The Pollen Grain
The pollen grain is the carrier of the male gametes or their progenitor cell, in higher plants. In a single unit, each grain contains all the genetic information required to specify an entire haploidExpand

Aerobiology of Grass Pollen in the City Atmosphere of Melbourne: Effects of Weather Parameters and Pollen Sources.
The incidence of grass pollen, estimated by using a Burkard spore trap sited above a city building, is correlated with meteorological factors. Pollen incidence was greatest on days with high maximumExpand

Breeding System and Reproductive Success of Thryptomene calycina (Myrtaceae)
Thryptomene calycina (Lindl.) Stapf is a small bush with a long flowering period in winter. Hundreds of small flowers open at one time. Its breeding system is highly self-incompatible, with an indexExpand

The Structure and Histochemistry of the Nectary and Anther Secretory Tissue of the Flowers of Thryptomene calycina (Lindl) Stapf (Myrtaceae)
Flowers of Thryptomene calycina contain two types of secretory tissue. Nectaries of the floral tube secrete a nectar rich in fructose and glucose, probably through the numerous stomata in theExpand

Pollen-stigma interactions: Identification and characterization of surface components with recognition potential.
Male-female recognition in flowering plants is initiated by mutual contact of pollen and stigma surface components. Analysis of the surface macromolecules of both stigma and pollen of GladiolusExpand

Cell recognition in plants: Determinants of the stigma surface and their pollen interactions.
The interaction between compatible pollen grains and the female stigma of Gladiolus gandavensis has been used as a model system for investigation of cell recognition in plants. The molecularExpand
