Reproductive biology of Melaleuca alternifolia (Myrtaceae) 2. Incompatibility and pollen transfer in relation to the breeding system
The onset of stigma receptivity in Melaleuca alternifolia (Maiden Betche) Cheel was evaluated by observing pollen-tube growth and seed set following controlled pollination. Pollen-tube numbers in the style, following controlled pollinations, increased from Day 1 to Day 6, then declining rapidly. The stigma was most receptive during Days 3-6, and still receptive at low levels as early as shortly after anthesis and as late as 10 days after pollination. The present study found that individuals of...[Show more]
