Ovulate cone morphology and pollination in Pseudotsuga and Cedrus


International Journal of Plant Sciences 156(5): 630-639
Ovulate cone morphology and pollination in Pseudotsuga and Cedrus
Pollen movement inside ovulate cones in Pseudotsuga and Cedrus was examined. The pollination mechanism for these 2 conifers involves pollen capture by the integument apex and subsequent transport into the micropylar canal. The study provided insight into the relationship between the structure of ovulate cones and pollination efficiency. It was also discovered that rainwater plays a role in pollen capture in Cedrus.
