Monoecious Plants

Monoecious Plants

 

plants that have both staminate and pistillate flowers. Examples of monoecious plants are birch, hazelnut, oak, pine, spruce, corn, and squashes. Also referred to as being monoecious are plants that lack flowers but have both male and female reproductive organs. Such plants include many mosses and algae.

Migalj (1969) found that the acetolyzed pollen grains of dioecious strains tended to have a diameter averaging about 33 pm, while the grains of monoecious strains were smaller, with a diameter averaging about 27 pm; and the pollen of dioecious plants was also more uniform, while that of monoecious plants were more variable in size and in number of pores.
Among monoecious plants, the classification of the plant that supplied the pollen is written first, followed by the classification of the plant that supplied the ovule and developed the seed.
Effects of pollen vector and plant geometry on floral sex ratio in monoecious plants.
The production of specialized male and female flowers in a single monoecious plant is clearly a developmental modification rather than the kind of simple dichotomous genetic trait proposed for the species that evolved via gynodioecy.
