Cytohistological Analyses of Mega-sporogenesis and Gametogenesis in Ovules of Limonium spp.
Authors:  Ana S. Róis and Ana D. Caperta, date: 11/05/2016, view: 1306, Q&A: 0
Limonium spp. are known to have sexual and apomixis (asexual reproduction through seeds) reproductive modes. Here, we present dissection protocol developed for ovules of Limonium spp. using differential interference contrast (DIC) ...
