Studies in natural pollination of cocoa in Ghana

, : Studies in natural pollination of cocoa in Ghana. Acta Horticulturae (49): 223-229

Two dominant characters, normal green and red pigmentation, were used to identify cross and selfed progenies of open-pollinated pods from vegetatively propagated trees heterozygous for the recessive albino character. It was found that spacing 6 rows of cacao at 2.4 m X 2.4 m could not prevent the transfer of pollen across that distance by pollinating insects. Other studies involving self-incompatible trees confirmed that pollen could be transferred over even wider distances.

Increased fibre intake has been shown to reduce serum oestrogen concentrations. We hypothesized that fibre exerts this effect by decreasing the time available for reabsorption of oestrogens in the colon. We tested this in volunteers by measuring c...
