Special Issue "The Morphological Diversity and Evolution of Pollen"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 March 2024 | Viewed by 714
Pollen grains are the male gametophytes of flowering plants. Although they are very simple organisms, they display a wide range of variation in aperture type, pollen wall architecture, pollen unit and grain shape and size, etc. The variation exists at different systematic scales and is observable in fossils to indicate evolutionary trends. Hence, pollen morphological data have proved to be crucial to the resolution of relationships in angiosperms.
This Special Issue aims to collect research articles, short communications, and review articles on recent contributions to the diversity and evolution of pollen morphology.
