Notes: The Use of Heat-Treated Pollen for Aspen Haploid Production

The full text article is temporarily unavailable.

We apologise for the inconvenience. Please try again later.

Pollen of quaking aspen (Populus tremuloides Michx.) and white poplar (P. alba L.) was treated with infrared heat at 50°C for 0 to 5 minutes, then used to pollinate receptive female flowers of quaking aspen. From the P. tremuloides X tremuloides cross, four haploid diploid mixaploids, but no entirely haploid plants, were recovered from among 2-month-old seedlings. The recovery of spindly, diploid aberrants in both crosses, as well as three glaucous diploids from the P. tremuloides X alba cross, indicates that spontaneous diploidization occurred in maternal haploids. A simple oven is described for weakening pollen.
