The reserve substances of pollen and their phylogenetic, ecological and embryological significance


The reserve substances of pollen and their phylogenetic, ecological and embryological significance



Nuovo G. bot. ital 59: 1-26



In general, anemophilous plants have starchy pollen in contrast to entomophilous plants where the pollen is fatty. Carotenoids have only been found in entomophilous plants. Starchy pollen is believed to be a primitive characteristic.
