The process of fertilization initiates the development of the ovary into a mature avocado fruit, and the ovule into the seed, inside of which is the embryo.

Studies in floral biology are largely concerned with how flowers function to promote pollination and mating. The role of pollination in governing mating patterns in plant populations inextricably links the evolution of pollination and mating systems.

This volume highlights the new synthesis of pollination biology and plant mating systems which is rejuvenating the two-hundred-year-old discipline of floral biology.

It provides a current examination of the evolution and functional significance of floral traits in animal-pollinated plants, combining ecological and genetic studies with natural history approaches and theoretical modeling.

Floral biology is a dynamic and growing area and this book, written by the leading internationally recognized researchers in this field, reviews current progress in understanding the evolution and function of flowers.

The filament is a slender, threadlike object, which functions by supporting the anther. Pistil: This is the innermost part and the female reproductive organ of a flower which comprises three parts. Flower Biology Flowering occurs in plants with particular climatic changes such as sunny, cold, dry or drought conditions.

In conducive growing conditions plant size and foliage increase, but many flowers are not produced. Flowers are the reproductive organs of a plant. Sexual reproduction in plants is enabled by flowering and is a sign of plant survival. vegetables in Nigeria, studies on their pollination biology and breeding systems are lacking.

More than half of the over million people in Nigeria depend on this genus daily in one way or another as sources of vegetable supplement. This study describes the floral morphology, breeding, and pollination biology of the 3 varieties of C. moschata. (ii) Flower is a modified shoot: The shoot apical meristem changes to floral meristem.

The axis of the stem gets condensed, while the internodes lie near each other. The apex produces different kinds of floral appendages laterally at successive nodes of the leaves.

Instead of leaves, various floral appendages arise from the node. The book also deals with the functions of floral rewardlessness, a condition which often serves as a precursor to the evolution of mimicry in plant lineages. The authors pay particular attention to the increasing body of research on chemical cues: their molecular basis, their role in cognitive misclassification of flowers by pollinators, and.

Floral biology is an area of ecological research that studies the evolutionary factors that have moulded the structures, behaviour and physiological aspects involved in the flowering of plants.

The field is broad and interdisciplinary and involves research requiring expertise from multiple disciplines that can include botany, ethology, biochemistry, entomology and a range of analytical techniques. Floral Biology attempts to show how floral biologists conduct their experiments and what techniques they employ in floral biology.

The techniques employed include those of physics, chemistry, physiology, psychology, genetics, and ecology, and so constitute a broad training in biology that may be useful and acceptable in other fields.
