The sex expression of Tilia japonica is functional andromonoecy (an andromonoecious system with abortion of perfect flowers). Some of protandrous flowers are aborted after shedding pollen grains and thus are functionally male flowers (FMF). When b...

Investigations were made as part of a study of ways to prevent Japanese cedar (C. japonica) pollinosis. It is concluded that as pollen production is likely to increase over the next 20-30 years, varieties with low flowering ability should be plant...
