Spatial and temporal variation in pollen tube numbers in Lindera benzoin (spicebush)



Spatial and temporal variation in pollen tube numbers in Lindera benzoin (spicebush)



Canadian Journal of Botany 72(2): 268-271



The numbers of pollen tubes per stigma and style were examined in naturally pollinated plants in two populations of the dioecious shrub Lindera benzoin to reveal variation between populations, among plants within populations, among flowers within plants, and among early and late blooming flowers. Most of the variation in pollen tube numbers is within individual plants. Differences between populations are likely due to observed differences in pollinator activity.
