Über die Kreuzungsunverträglichkeit verschiedenerBrassica-Arten als Folge eines gehemmten Pollenschlauchwachstums

  • Gerhard Röbbelen


Crosses were made in all possible combinations between the following six species of the genusBrassica: B. oleracea, B. nigra, B. campestris, B. carinata, B. juncea, andB. napus. This was done in order to determine the causes of the differences in seed set after these interspecific crosses and to obtain some methods for improving the yield. The present publication deals with several investigations on the pollen tube growth in interspecific pollinations, and the following results were reported:

  1. 1.

    The germination of the pollen is retarded, and the growth of the pollen tube is inhibited with different intensities for the individual crosses. Consequently, the pollen tubes are unable to penetrate the stigma or to reach the ovules in time.

  2. 2.

    The inhibitory effects may be weakened or strengthened by changes of the environmental conditions which affect the mutual relations between pollen and stigma. The deficiency of pollen germinations is thus eliminated by high air humidity. The inhibition of pollen tube growth depends mainly on temperature, age of pollinated flower, and physiological stage of the mother plant. It is particularly reduced by lower temperatures (about 15° C) and less remarkable in buds and, to a certain extent, in older flowers than in those recently opened.

  3. 3.

    Therefore it is advantageous to carry out hybridizations of the studiedBrassica species under cool and humid weather conditions and to use plants which are not very luxurious as well as buds which would open 2 to 3 days later.

  4. 4.

    The same morphological and physiological peculiarities of pollen tubes that were observed inBrassica after interspecific cross-pollination are also found after self-pollination of the three diploid species ofBrassica used for this work. Therefore in the discussion of our results the interspecific inhibition of the pollen tube growth has been compared with the self-sterility reaction as it is common in many cruciferous plants.
