Kawarase A. D., Kunjalwar S.G


Abstract: There is advantages in using pollen grains as a valuable source of characters in systematic studies. Cyperus is an important genus of Cyperaceae. In the present study five species of Cyperus have been selected for pollen morphological studies, The species chosen are C. alopecuroides Rottb. , C. alulatus Kern, C. iria Linn, C. compressus Linn, C. nutans Vahl. Pollen grains of Cyperaceae are oblate spheroidal to perprolate in shape, inaperturate to polyporate with opercula or pontopercula on pori or colpi. Apertures occur in all species investigated. Pollen morphological variation within Cyperus is considerable.
