Mesh size

The size of the openings in a sieve, expressed as the number of such openings per linear inch.

Pollen grains

The minute spores (spheroidal structures) in the anthers of a floret

Pollen fertility

The viability of pollen usually tested by the stainability of the rice pollen.

Meristem culture

A technique of growing large pieces of tissue (explant) from meristematic tissues found in the root and shoot tips of a plant in semisolid or liquid medium under aseptic conditions.

Meristem

Cells at the growing tips of stems or roots that are dividing and are undifferentiated but later become different parts of the plant. Region of actively dividing cells in plants.

Pollen

A mature reproductive male germ cell, microscoporocyte, specialized for fertilization.

Mendel's laws

1) Law of independent segregation: hereditary traits are determined by discrete factors (now known as genes) that appear in pairs, one of each pair being inherited from each parent. During meiosis, the pairs of factors are separated or segregated. Hence, each gamete that is produced by an offspring at maturity contains only one member of each pair that the offspring produces.
2) Law of independent assortment: when two pairs of alleles are brought together in a hybrid combination, they will segregate independently from each other in the F2 itself.

Meiosis

Specialized cell division associated with gamete production. It consists of two divisions, one of which is reductional in terms of chromosome number and the other, equational. Meiosis produces genetically different gametes in a heterozygote having one-half of the genetic material of the original cell.

Pod

Jul

Pneumatophore

Meiocyte

Megasporangia

The receptacle in which macrospores (female spores) are developed.

Pluvic

Derived from pluvia of rain; Descriptive of a land type where water contributed by rain or irrigation does not stay for more than 3 hours on the soil even if the soil has been worked wet.
