Defined Components Involved in Pollination
Our understanding of fertilization has progressed from the early microscopic observations which led to definition of the biology of pollen tube growth and fertilization, through cytochemical examination of pollen and stigmas which provided evidence for the presence of certain classes of components, and finally to the isolation and structural characterization of a few of these components.
