1. We tested the statistical significance of an association between pollen ornamentation and pollination system in two families of the monocotyledons, the Araceae and the Arecaceae, taking into account the phylogenetic framework. SEM. Multiple lines of evidence supported the hypothesis that pollen disparity in Ericaceae did not evolve steadily but rather pulsed over time, clearly decoupling from the relative constant rate pattern of species diversification inferred. A similar type of floral organisation thus seems to have evolved twice independently, resulting in similar, but distantly related lineages.

Hygroscopic weight gain of pollen grains from Juniperus species Landon D. Bunderson & Estelle Levetin Received: 12 June 2013/Revised: 26 June 2014/Accepted: 27 June 2014/Published online: 10 July 2014 # ISB 2014 Abstract Juniperus pollen is highly allergenic and is pro-duced in large quantities across Texas, Oklahoma, and New Mexico. Questions from Sexual Reproduction in Flowering Plants. patterns often with microechinate sculpturing. Journal/Book_names=Chigakukenkyu. We suggest that spore ornamentation evolved from simple to complex in Adiantum. There is a high degree of specialisation in surface ornamentation, wall structure and aperture type in these groups when compared to other caesalpinioid taxa. These products could be implicated in attachment and recognition of the pollen at the stigma surface. The central cytoplasmic part is the source of nuclei responsible for fertilization. Global Pollen Project UUID df216f74-a803-456d-bacf-f92e4cd0fdbe Botanical Reference None available. Four types (I–IV) were observed only in subtribe Sanguisorbinae whereas two types The pollen grains ofOttelia alismoides are inaperturate, not omniaperturate, because of the well-developed foot layer. Macroscopic analysis of achene morphology often indicated parallel evolution of structures related to certain dispersal mechanisms. Bar = 1 mm. 80 species, shows a remarkable morphological diversity which presumably The basic and most common type is tricolpate, which is observed in most of the Ranunculus species. Results: Pollen is globular and free but in the marine genera (Thalassia and Halophila) - the pollen grains are carried in chains, like strings of beads. Among monocots, compound pollen grains are known in Alismatales (Araceae, Hydrocharitaceae, Scheuchzeriaceae), Poales (Bromeliaceae, Cyperaceae, Juncaceae, Typhaceae, Thurniaceae), Asparagales (Amaryllidaceae, Orchidaceae), Commelinales (Philydraceae) and Pandalales (Velloziaceae) (Knox & McConchie, 1986; Copenhaver, 2005). Tanaka, N. 2000. 349 Monad- A pollen grain in the form of a single unit. To overcome this shortfall, we propose a new sectional classification of subg. The pollen grains ofOttelia alismoides are inaperturate, not omniaperturate, because of the well-developed foot layer. The process of transfer of pollen grains from another to stigematic surface of the. The pollen morphology and tapetal membranes of 17 species of Trillium were examined by scanning and transmission electron microscopy.-from Author. Mainly because of this unique floral morphology, Kohautia was considered to be a distinct genus. We also show that the method chosen may strongly influence the results. Among the different types of relationship implying pollen ornamentation that have been suggested, the existence of a link between exine sculpturing and pollinator type has often been proposed and was even evidenced in certain situations (see additional file 1). developed as an adaptation to their aquatic habitat. Among these wind-pollinated aquatics, 100 genera have obvious terrestrial relatives that are also wind pollinated. The first branching lineages in tribe Cercideae have an unspecialised pollen type, whereas the more variable and distinct pollen types are found in the more derived lineages, in Schnella, Lasiobema, Phanera and Bauhinia s.str.
