The secretions present in the stigma and the central canal in the stigmatic and stylar transmitting tissue, took on a deep red coloration after staining with safranin, and they reacted strongly to PAS (see Figure 4O).
includes about 1250 species of cosmopolitan distribution; it was distinguished principally by its truncate, penicillate stylar tips, separated stigmatic lines, and the obtuse or rounded anther base with a balusterform filament collar.
5 mm long altogether, the stipe shorter than to nearly as long as the sharply trigonous body, the stylar end slender elongate, slightly broadening and scaberulous-papillose distally; achene surface pale, minutely cancellate-punctate, the 3 edges smooth, wirelike, glassy.
that species with stylar movements that ensure self-pollination, or that possess cleistogamous flowers, are in fact self-compatible; and that dioecious species are self-incompatible).
5 mm in a common tube with petals and style; anthers 2-3 mm long, fixed at 1/3 of its length above the base, base distinctly setaceous-sagittate, apex obtuse; pollen narrowly ellipsoid, sulcate, exine perforate to insulate, muri thicked; stigma conduplicate, white, stylar lobes terete, suberect, ca.
A supergene complex has been proposed by Sharma and Boyes (1961), consisting of five subgenes corresponding to stylar incompatibility, pollen incompatibility, style length, pollen size, and stamen height.
The flowers also show enantiostyly; the stylar deflection results in left or right-handed flowers and pollen deposition is produced to one side of the bee's abdomen when it vibrates the stamens.
In obligately outcrossing species, enhanced movement of self pollen (geitonogamy) can negatively impact fitness if self pollen clogs stigmas, interferes with stylar transmitting tracts, usurps ovules, or increases fruit abortion.
the fruit has very thin skin toward the stylar (away from the stem) end.
It is characterized by premature ripening of the flesh on one or both sides of the suture toward the stylar (blossom) end of the fruit (Benson 1959; MacLean et al.
1988; Rocha and Stephenson 1990), seeds were assigned to the stylar (top) or peduncular (bottom) halves of each fruit.
