    The study observed the pollen morphology and ontogeny of Maianthemum bifolium (L.) F.W. Schmidt and explored the development and structure of its anther wall using conventional paraffin section and histochemical techniques. The results showed that it has four anthers, consecutive cytokinesis,...

    Young buds and flowers of Onobychis schahuensis were removed at different stages of anther development and sectioned with micotome after preparation. The anther and pollen development were studied with light microscopy after staining. Results showed that some ultrastructural characters of anther...

    The leaf structure of Galanthus nivalis L. (snowdrop) and Leucojum aestivum L. (snowflake) is characterized by a homogeneous mesophyll tissue. The dominant characters of the leaves are cavities with mucose substance. There is a striking difference between these plants tepal anatomy. A central...

    The male gametophyte and tapetum play different roles during anther development although they are differentiated from the same cell lineage, the L2 layer. Until now, it has not been possible to delineate their transcriptomes due to technical difficulties in separating the two cell types. In the...
