Preface

The principal aim in compiling this book was to provide the readerwith first-hand information about the structure and outlook of the extremely manifold pollen in seed plants.

Pollen Terminology. An illustrated Handbook should not be seen as a mere collection of striking and/or informative light and electron micrographs. Each of the micrographs is intended to convey a specific message related to properties and functions of the pollen grains shown. The authors hope that the book will be useful for experienced researchers as well as for beginners in paly-nology, but also for medicine, biochemistry, or even for lawyers and artists as an aid and guide for the evaluation and interpretation of pollen features.
