Previewing Pollen Biology special issue of Plant Physiology

pollentubeIn Plant Physiology Preview you can get a head start on reading the excellent set of articles from a forthcoming special issue on Pollen Biology. Updates and research articles cover all aspects of this crucial part of reproductive biology, from the complex cell biology that underpins polar growth of pollen tubes to the signals exchanged between pistil and pollen that control mate selection. Selected reveiws cover Gametophytic pollen tube guidance (10.1104/pp.16.01571), Pollen-pistil interactions and their role in mate selection (10.1104/pp.16.01286), and Signaling with ions: the keystone for apical cell growth and morphogenesis in pollen tubes (10.1104/pp.16.01561).
