Biparental inheritance is very rare in angiosperms and has been described in only a few species--namely, Medicago sativa (Schumann & Hancock, 1989; Corriveau et al.
In the vegetative cell of pollen grain, plastid DNA breaks down from pollen mitosis independently of maternal or biparental inheritance (Sodmergen et al.
In species with biparental inheritance, however, plastid DNA is intensively synthesized during the end of pollen maturation (Miyamura et al.
