Techniques for clearing ovules for studies of megagametophyte and early postfertilization development in Rhododendron.

Abstract

Using ovule clearing, more than 33,600 ovules of Rhododendron nuttallii T. W. Booth (Ericaceae) were examined for megagametophyte and early postfertilization stages at daily intervals from anthesis until 3 weeks after pollination. Pretreatments with amyloglucosidase to digest integumentary and gametophyte starch and Stockwell's bleach to remove tannins from… (More)
