Pollen viability and germination are known to be sensitive to high temperature (HT). However, the mode by which high temperature impairs pollen functioning is not yet clear. In the present study, we investigated the effect of high temperature on changes occurring in carbohydrate of bell pepper (Capsicum annuum L. cv. Mazurka) pollen in order to find possible relations between these changes and pollen germination under heat stress. When pepper plants were maintained under a moderate HT regime… CONTINUE READING
