The present study is insight into pollen morphology for characterizing species and their utility in the taxonomic separation of certain taxa of subfamily Nepetoideae (Lamiaceae) from Pakistan. The pollen micromorphology of 11 species of the Nepetoideae was analyzed and documented using light microscopy and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) for both qualitative and quantitative characteristics. Most species have hexazonocolpate pollen grains but trizonocolpate and tetrazonocolpate pollen with… Expand
Palynological characteristics of selected Lamioideae taxa and its taxonomic significance
TLDR
The pollen morphology of some selected taxa of the subfamily Lamioideae from Pakistan is documented and strengthens the taxonomic identification of subfamily based on pollen characters, which helps in the correct identification, discrimination of the species of Lamioidesae at generic and species level.

Palynological investigation of lactiferous flora (Apocynaceae) of District Rawalpindi, Pakistan, using light and scanning electron microscopy
TLDR
The pollen morphological data are compared with available other pollen studies to evaluate the taxonomic value of pollen traits in Apocynaceae taxa by using multiple microscopic techniques and indicated that exine ornamentation of ApOCynaceaeTaxa is systematically informative at generic and species levels. Expand
Morpho‐palynological assessment of some species of family Asteraceae and Lamiaceae of District Bannu, Pakistan on the bases of light microscope & scanning electron microscopy
TLDR
The present research work provides detailed information of diverse morpho‐palynological characters both qualitatively and quantitatively including pollen shape, type, diameter, P/E ratio, exine sculpturing and thickness. Expand
Morphological characterization of Hypnaceae (Bryopsida, Hypnales): Investigating four genera from Western Himalayas by using LM and SEM techniques
TLDR
The main objective of the research project is to present the comparative light and scanning electron microscopic study to discuss the morphology of the Hypnaceae in detail because previously the family is just reported in different bryophyte checklists of the Western Himalayas. Expand
Taxonomic significance of cypsela morphology in tribe Cichoreae (Asteraceae) using light microscopy and scanning electron microscopy
TLDR
The aim of the present study is to provide a comprehensive description of the Cypsela morphology and to determine the extent to which these micro morphological data can be used as a taxonomic character to delineate various taxa belonging to the tribe Cichoreae. Expand
Comparative pollen and foliar micromorphological studies using light microscopy and scanning electron microscopy of some selected species of Lamiaceae from Alpine Zone of Deosai Plateau, Western Himalayas
TLDR
Pollen and foliar micromorphological features of selected species of Lamiaceae were found to be important in discrimination of species from each other and the detailed study with comprehensive morphology coupled with other important characters is required for delimitation of taxa at various levels. Expand
Taxonomic significance of foliar epidermal morphology in Lamiaceae from Pakistan
TLDR
A taxonomic key was developed to delimit and correctly identify studied taxa and further molecular, other anatomical and phylogenetic studies are recommended to strengthen the systematics of Lamiaceae. Expand
Pollen Morphology of Tribes Alsineae and Sperguleae (Caryophyllaceae) and Its Systematic Significance
TLDR
Pollen characteristics indicate that tribe Alsineae is more evolved than tribe Sperguleae, and the results demonstrate that the number of pores, the pollen surface ornamentation and the density of microechini have important systematic significance. Expand
Pollen morphology of Chinese Pseudostellaria (Caryophyllaceae) and its systematic significance
TLDR
Pollen features do not support the traditional infrageneric classification of Pseudostellaria into two sections, but support that Pseudstellaria is closely related to other species of the Odontostemma clade. Expand
Taxonomic importance of pollen morphology in Veratrum L. (Melanthiaceae) using microscopic techniques
TLDR
Overall, it is demonstrated that the ratio of polar axis length to equatorial axial length, pollen characteristics at the polar view, the colpus morphology, and the surface ornamentation of pollen grains of genus Veratrum have important systematic significance in identification and delimitation of species.

TLDR
The results indicated that the exine sculpturing pattern of Lamium is systematically informative at sectional level, but not at the species and infraspecific levels. Expand
Pollen morphology of some Nepeta L. species in NW Iran
TLDR
The results indicated that the majority of the studied species were characterized by monad, hexazonocolpate, isopolar, heterobrochate, and prolate pollen grains, and it was revealed that there were some differences in pollen characters among the studied taxa. Expand
Systematic Importance of Pollen Morphology of Some Plants of (Lamiaceae)
TLDR
Pollen morphology of seven taxa belonging to Lamiaceae and common used as medicinal plants were examined by light (LM) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and the presence of holes on colpus membrane ornamentation can be used as a taxonomic tool for sectional division between. Expand
Using palynomorphological characteristics for the identification of species of Alsinoideae (Caryophyllaceae): a systematic approach
TLDR
Palynological characters of 18 species belonging to seven genera of the traditional subfamily Alsinoideae including Arenaria, Cerastium, Eremogone, Lepyrodiclis, Minuartia, Sabulina and Stellaria were studied in detail using light and scanning electron microscopy and a dichotomous key has been developed for quick and easy identification.

TLDR
New pollen data support Lophanthus and Nepeta as very closely allied and Lallemantia is clearly distinct from Dracocephalum, and the formerly suggested infrageneric relationships within Dracocephalums and Nepetinae are only partly corroborated by palynological characters. Expand
