    Uittreksel

    The family of the Ranunculaceae contains a large group of flowering plants. The natural habitat of Ranunculus asiaticus and Anemone coronaria, two important cut flowers, is located around the Mediterranean Sea. The flowering season of both cut flowers does not correspond. This provides an extra barrier for intergeneric breeding research. Study of pollen viability and pollen storage was undertaken. Using in vitro germination media, pollen viability can be observed. Therefore, several pollen germination media (16) were tested for different Anemone and Ranunculus cultivars. Germination rates as well as pollen tube lengths were measured. As Anemone coronaria flowers earlier than Ranunculus asiaticus, several storage techniques were tried out on Anemone pollen. A good protocol results in viable pollen on moments that natural occuring pollen is not available for breeding.
