While both asymmetrical and symmetrical divisions in uninucleate microspores can initiate embryogenesis, it results more frequently from the former. Since micronuclei have been found both in multicellular pollen and in some albino pollen plants, it is inferred that albino and abnormal pollen plants may originate from multicellular pollen which contains micronuclei.
