Exine development: the importance of looking through a colloid chemistry ``window''

  title={Exine development: the importance of looking through a colloid chemistry ``window''},

Most biological construction systems operate within the colloidal dimension. In view of this, it seems reasonable to reassess what is known of the early stages of exine development in the light of a brief excursion into colloid and micelle behaviour. The results of this analysis show remarkable similarity of structures and suggest that almost all of the features seen during early pollen wall development can be easily interpreted using simple, established colloidal principles. This study of… CONTINUE READING
