Reproductive development in pawpaw

Juan Losada
While the pawpaw, (Asimina triloba) is one of few native North American fruit trees, not much is known about its flower and fruit development. Juan Losada (Arboretum Fellow), Iñaki Hormaza and Jorge Lora (Jewett Prize Recipient) examined its development in American Journal of Botany. Complementing this work, the genome of Asimina triloba, 12708*A, is being sequenced with support from an Arboretum Sequencing Award. abstract»

Reproductive biology in apple

Juan Losada

In order for fertilization to occur, the pollen tube must maneuver through various maternal tissues as it travels from the stigma to the embryo sac. In the current issue of BMC Plant Biology, Juan Losada and María Herrero examined the characteristics of pollen tube growth and its interaction with maternal tissues in domesticated apple (Malus x domestica). abstract »
