    Abstract: Variation in pollen stainability and morphometric sizes were recorded in the pollen grains of Hyptis suaveolens in a given sample population. Infrequent pollenkitt distribution in the outer wall of pollen was recorded. Distribution pattern of stained and unstained pollen revealed the characteristic variation in pollen sizes. The micromorphometric m... Show More
