Pollen of the genera of Agave from the Yucatán Peninsula
AbstractThe pollen of Agave angustifolia Haw., A. fourcroydes Lem., A. sisalana Perrine and Manfreda maculata (Regel) Rose, occurring in the Yucatan Peninsula have been studied, with special emphasis on A. angustifolia. Observations were made with light and scanning microscopy. Considerable variation in apertures was found that included: anasulcate, tricotomosulcate, "horse shoe" type and disulcate. Ornamentation is basically the same among the species. The pollen of Agave and Manfreda -are very similar suggesting they are closely related.
