Pollen and seed morphology of someOphrys L. (Orchidaceae) taxa

Article

Abstract

Morphologies of pollen and seed surfaces were investigated with SEM technology for eight natural Ophrys taxa collected from southeastern Mediterranean countries and Turkey. The morphometric characteristics ofO. transhyrcana, O. sphegodes, O. epirotica, O. mammosa, O. pseudomammosa, O. oestrifera subsp.oestrifera, O. cornuta, andO. apifera were recorded and compared statistically. In general, the current species could be separated, in detail, according to those characteristics. These findings were also compared with those from recent studies, and were examined in terms of the present neighbouring taxa.
