Male gametophyte development in flowering plants: A story of quarantine and sacrifice.
TLDR
A brief account of the cytological and metabolic differentiation between the vegetative cell and male germ cells is provided, with emphasis on the role of temporary callose walls, dynamic nuclear pore density, transcription repression, and histone variants. Expand
On polyspermy in the sunflower
TLDR
Polyspermy is a widespread phenomenon among cross-fertilizing Angiosperms and does not seem to occur among self-pollinating species. Expand
THE BASES OF ANGIOSPERM PHYLOGENY
TLDR
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. Expand
Single fertilization inSpiranthes sinensis
TLDR
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. Expand
Amorphophallus: New insights into pollen morphology and the chemical nature of the pollen wall
TLDR
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. Expand
Cytological study of pollen tube growth and early seed development inPetunia inflata
TLDR
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. Expand
Phylogenetic implications of pollen nuclear number in theAraceae
  • M. Grayum
  • Biology
  • Plant Systematics and Evolution
  • 2006
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.Expand
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-statesExpand

Male Cells in Angiosperms. I. Spermatogenesis and Fertilization in Asclepias cornuti
TLDR
The existence of male cells on the one hand in Asclepias and on the other in Vallisneria, as has recently been shown by Wylie (40), makes very probable their occurrence among other angiosperms. Expand
Studies on the male gametophyte in angiosperms, VI. Abnormalities in the pollen development of some Crinum-species
TLDR
The mode of polyad formation in several cases suggests that those abnormalities of low frequencies in the genetically homologous individuals may be ascribed to an accidental failure of balance among the physical and chemical conditions in a few pollen mother cells, which has been caused by interactions of those conditions in the course of meiosis.

Study of the Life History of Brassica oleracea
TLDR
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. Expand
