Book Description APH Publishing Corporation, 1998. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Pollen Grain is the carrier of male gametes in Seed plants, designed to bring into effect a peculiar siphonogamous mode of sperm carriage to the Female gamete. This peculiar mode of gametic Transmission has not only facilitated the advent of seed habit in the land plants, it has also helped seed Plants circumvent the need of Water for Sexual reproduction and be more widely distributed on land, in contrast to the lower plants such as mosses and Ferns that are Handicapped for they ought to have water to undertake the zoogamous mode of spermatic passage and thus have a restricted distribution. A Pollen GRAIN also possesses a load of Recognition factors that help it recognize pistil of compatible type and prevent wastage of Plant resources with the help of incompatibility Reactions that forbid the crossing between unrelated plants that could otherwise end up producing sterile hybrids. The understanding of pollen Biology should be essential to a plant breeder and agronomist aiming at producing high yielding and resistant cultivars by hybridization. Cryopreservation of pollen has been a very potent way of conserving in gene Banks the germplasm of fast disappearing wild ancestors of the present day cultigens, for such a conservation is of critical importance in saving the Disease and stress-resistance genes that abound in relatives of cultivated plants growing in the wild, and constitute the only longstanding source of hope against the fast-evolving disease-causing Bacteria and fungi. Pollen grain is an ideal system for manipulating the plant genome in the techniques of Genetic engineering, since it is a direct contributor into the genetic constitution of the next generation. Profound care has been taken to make the present book a compilation of contemporary and original information about the pollen in a lucid and non-monotonous style, and also to give unbiased and logical interpretations to the collation of such findings. The book should thus prove indispensable to any-one undertaking Research in plant reproductive biology, agriculture, biotechnology, genetic engineering, conservation of genes, cell biology and even plant-animal co-evolution. The text also covers a reasonable part of the subject of Embryology in the syllabi of Study in Botany of both undergraduate and postgraduate courses in the Indian and foreign universities. The book should also be informative to any-one interested in plant sciences since it aims at elucidating a significant part of sexual reproduction in plants including the aspects of floral Ecology and as to how plant and Pollinator have perfected a symbiosis as they have co-evolved. Printed Pages: 140. Bookseller Inventory # 37578
