Links between early pollen development and aperture pattern in monocots

  title={Links between early pollen development and aperture pattern in monocots},
  author={Sophie Nadot and Arlette Forchioni and Laurent Penet and Julie Sannier and Adrienne Ressayre},
Although the pollen grains produced in monocots are predominantly monosulcate (or monoporate), other aperture types are also found within this taxonomic group, such as the trichotomosulcate, inaperturate, zonaperturate, di-, or triaperturate types. The aperture pattern is determined during the young-tetrad stage of pollen development and it is known that some features of microsporogenesis can constrain the aperture type. For example, trichotomosulcate pollen is always associated with… CONTINUE READING
