    Background and Aims Insufficient pollination is a function of quantity and quality of pollen receipt, and the relative contribution of each to pollen limitation may vary with intrinsic plant traits and extrinsic ecological properties. Community-level studies are essential to evaluate variation...

    Background and Aims During sexual reproduction in higher angiosperms, the pollen tubes are directed to the ovules in the pistil to deliver sperm cells. This pollen tube attraction is highly species specific, and a group of small secreted proteins, TfCRPs, are necessary for this process in...

    Aim of the work was to study the general characteristics and essential morphological traits of pollen grains viz the size, shape of pollen grains and number, form and position of apertures in Diospyros kaki L.f., D. virginiana L., D. lotus L. species and interspecies hybrid of D. virginiana...

    A definition of the term "cross-compatible" is presented. It refers to the time when the pollen of one cultivar is capable of growing on the stigma of another.

    A definition of the term "cross-fruitful" is presented. It refers to bearing fruit by cross-pollination.

  • self-pollination:. Gough, Robert E. // Glossary of Vital Terms for the Home Gardener;1993, p81 

    A definition of the term "self-pollination" is presented. It refers to the transfer of pollen from anther to stigma of the same flower or between flowers of the same cultivar.

    Pollination failure represents one stage at which sexual reproduction of plants may be limited. It is therefore important to understand the pollination mechanism of the plant and how this may be affected by plant and population characteristics. This study examined the reproductive biology of a...
