Fertility and Viability Level of Pollen Grains Collected from Different Areas of Chapra Town (Bihar)

Naira Nayab [2] | Dr. Anzer Alam [2]


Abstract: The effect of Vehicular pollution on fertility and viability level of 15 plant species collected from three locations of Chapra town were examined. Maximum reduction in percentage of pollen fertility (56.3 ? 58.5%) was observed for pollen grains of Parthenium hysteroforus collected from polluted areas as compared to control (80%). More percentage of pollen sterility was observed in pollen grains collected from city centre area than highway area in most of the plant species observed during present research work. Reduction in percentage of pollen germination was observed in pollen grains collected from two polluted sites as compared to comparatively unpolluted suburb area (control).


Keywords: Pollen fertility, pollen sterility, pollen viability, Chapra town
