Abstract:
The present study is confined to the palynological studies (pollen morphology and pollen fertility) estimation of some cultivated plant species of University of Arid Agriculture Rawalpindi campus. Pollen morphology of the selected species indicate that the pollen of these species varies in shape i.e, spherical, elliptical and oblong. The pollen fertility ranged from 60-100% among these species. In Bougainvellia glabra, Brassica campestris, Consolida ambigua, Tecoma stans, Crysanthemum indicum, Tagetis patela, Tradescantia indica, Hibiscus rosa-sinensis the range of pollen fertility is 98-100% whereas Catharanthus roseus, Canna indica, Calendula officinalis, Hibiscus circus, Jatropha integrrima, Jasminum grandiflora, Rosa indica and Rosa alba the range of fertility is below 98%. Pollen fertility studies have been modified helpful for the recognition of wide range of variation existing within plant species and differentiating plant species with genera.
