Floral receptivity

Juan Losada, William (Ned) Friedman, and colleagues examined the processes of floral receptivity in Magnolia virginiana. They found that there was a precise window of time, marked by specific secretory proteins, in which the stigma (female) was receptive to the pollen (male). This work was published in American Journal of Botany. abstract »
