On polyspermy in the sunflower

Polyspermy is a widespread phenomenon among cross-fertilizing Angiosperms and does not seem to occur among self-pollinating species.

THE BASES OF ANGIOSPERM PHYLOGENY

An eclectic ramble through phylogenetic aspects of floral structure includes the following: Sterling's view that the ancestral flowers of Rosaceae had only two ovules per carpel is examined and rejected, and it is concluded that centrifugality is not as valuable a phylogenetic indicator as some systematists had hoped it would be.

Single fertilization inSpiranthes sinensis

The reproduction system of this species represents a new type of single fertilization (non-double fertilization) between egg cell and sperm cell nuclei caused by the omission of generative cell division and the formation of only one sperm cell nucleus.

Amorphophallus: New insights into pollen morphology and the chemical nature of the pollen wall

A critical survey of contradicting reports on the impact of acetolysis treatment on Amorphophallus pollen, on the chemical nature of the outer pollen wall layer and of electron-dense (dark) granules found within it to clarify the pollen polarity and to test conclusions based on different preparation techniques.

Methods for characterizing pollen fitness in Cannabis sativa L.

Pollen grains are male gametophytes, an ephemeral haploid generation of plants, that commonly engage in competition for a limited supply of ovules. Since variation in reproductive capabilities among

Cytological study of pollen tube growth and early seed development inPetunia inflata

Pollen tube growth from the stigma into the ovule, and the early fruit and seed development following fertilization were examined in Petunia inflata, exhibiting the pattern of cellular type of endosperm development.

Data on pollen nuclear number are presented for 74 of the 111 currently accepted genera of theAraceae — one of only three monocot families in which both bi- and trinucleate pollen are known to occur.

Systematic embryology of the Araceae

Embryological data of systematic significance to the family Araceae are reviewed and analyzed, with special attention given to the determination of character-state polarities. Character-states

Study of the Life History of Brassica oleracea

The inflorescence of Brassica oleracea is racemose, but in some varieties is modified by lack of divergence to paniculate, as in cauli-flower, and germination was secured from seeds planted and developed within 33 days after pollination.

The tube nucleus of the mature pollen grain shows evidence of disintegration in all the species examined with the exception of the two species of Kochia and Atriplex.

Development of the Male Gametophyte in Tradescantia

It is suggested that development of the microspore is dependent on a full complement of gene products which pass into the cytoplasm at the preceding division, as well as on chromosome deficiencies in the dyad nuclei.

The Development of the Microsporangia and Microspores of Hemerocallis fulva

The origin of the supernumerary microspores was not absolutely determined and in many cases where their origin was indicated by spindles or otherwise they appeared to arise by the indirect division of one of the tetrad nuclei.
