About The Book

The book entitled 'Pollen Morphology: Illustrations' is a focused approach in the Palynology dealing in particular with the Angiosperms Pollen Morphology. Pollen, a male gametophyte, has unique palynotaxonomical characters that distinguished its biological significance from other bio-entities. The book introduces a reader to the basics and significance of pollen morphology studies. The book contains a review of the various techniques for pollen preparations and the development of pollen morphological studies. Pollen preparation and other optimized techniques presented in the book can be successfully applied to many taxon of the angiosperms for morphological studies. The book consists of scanning electron micrographs of more than 150 species grouped as per the plant family. The SEM pictorial presentation is followed by the Palynotaxonomical characterization is a handy tool for the ease of understanding. The compiled pollen identification key is quick access to the species-specific pollen morphological characters.
