From pollination to fertilization in fruit trees

  title={From pollination to fertilization in fruit trees},
  author={Maria Rosa Herrero},
  journal={Plant Growth Regulation},
The phase that elapses from pollination to fertilization is re-examined giving special attention to pollen pistil interaction in compatible matings. Pollination induces an activation of the pistil. A number of changes take place in the different tissues of this organ that appear to support male gametophyte development and to assist fertilization. Thus pollination induces stigma secretion, the release of starch from the transmitting tissue and prolongs embryo sac viability. It appears that even… CONTINUE READING
