Male meiotic prophase of diploid sugarbeet (Beta vulgaris L.) has been studied with emphasis on location and behaviour of the constitutive heterochromatin during the early prophase stages. The succession of the stages is determined by using anther length, size of the pollen mother cell nuclei and degree of development of the tapetal cells as criteria. Besides, the maturity gradient through each pollen sac and the high synchrony of the meiotic stages within each flowerbud prove to be valuable… CONTINUE READING
