ISHS Acta Horticulturae 561: VIII International Symposium on Pollination - Pollination: Integrator of Crops and Native Plant Systems

SEARCHING AND BREEDING FOR STRUCTURAL FEATURES OF FLOWERS CORRELATED WITH HIGH NECTAR-CARBOHYDRATE PRODUCTION

Author:   A.R. Davis
DOI:   10.17660/ActaHortic.2001.561.16
Abstract:
Structural features of flowers correlated with high nectar-carbohydrate production are examined, particularly from studies of various agricultural and horticultural plants. Some of these floral traits, and nectar characteristics (volume, and sugar concentration and production) themselves are followed in studies of inheritance. Recommendations are given for characteristics indicative of high nectar yields, and for those traits best eliminated early in breeding programmes.
