Cytomixis has been studied with the light microscope using species of Lilium da- vidii var. willmottiae, Lycium chinense, Allium fistulosum and Allium cepa and electron microscope using Lilium davidii var. willmottiae. With the electron microscope, the cytoplasm and chromatin of a Lilium pollen- mother-cell (PMC) was observed passing into a neighbouring cell through several adjacent plasma channels. Cytomixis appears to be a natural phenomenon occurring either in the resting stage or meiosis… CONTINUE READING
