What is in a pollination drop?

Pollination drops are ovular secretions that form a landing site for pollen in many gymnosperms. Arboretum Putnam Fellow Cary Pirone-Davies and coworkers characterized both the proteins present in the pollination drops and the ovule transcriptome in Cephalotaxus. The results published in Annals of Botany, shed light on the pollination biology of Cephalotaxus. AoBBlog»  abstract »
