Pollen morphology of selected Medicago species (Fabaceae: Papilionoidea)

, : Pollen morphology of selected Medicago species (Fabaceae: Papilionoidea). Thai Journal of Agricultural Science 22(2): 153-161

Pollen collected from 8 accessions of 6 Medicago spp. (annual and perennial types) was studied. M. blancheana pollen was tetracolporate and pentacolporate, while pollen of the other species (M. sativa, M. disciformis, M. rigidula, M. prostrata and M. scutellata) was tricolporate. Pollen of perennial cultivars varied from subprolate to prolate spheroidal and was modified perforate and scabrate in sculpture pattern.
