EXPERIMENTAL ESTIMATES OF POLLEN SEDIMENTATION VELOCITY
Numerous attempts have been made to measure sedimentation velocity of pollen grains and spores directly, using a variety of apparatus.
We compiled published still-air measurements of sedimentation velocity (Appendix 1), and plotted the sedimentation-velocity data to assess variability in estimates within and among studies for specific taxa [ILLUSTRATION FOR FIGURE 3 OMITTED].
