Assessment of the modes of pollen dispersal of Vernonia amygdalina Del. and Vernonia calvoana Hook

The study of pollen dispersal and mode of fertilization of Vernonia amygdalina and Vernonia  calvoana is a prerequisite to the understanding of genetic diversity and elaboration of improvement programs for the Vernonia genus. In this study, precise experimental designs were made for morphological and biological observations on Vernonia species capitulum in order to assess the distinctive effects of each of the...
