Baskorowati, Liliana; Moncur, M W; Cunningham, Saul; Doran, J.C.; Kanowski, Peter


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]
