Example text

Faults in the pericarp and testa may allow the embryo to start growing before the grain is ripe; so-called pregermination (Chapter 5). By keeping the surface layers over the embryo wet viviparous growth is induced (Chapter 12) [66,70]. Sometimes two embryos ('twins') are formed, pressed together in the space normally occupied by one [67]. When one or other of the fertilizations fail, then abnormal grains are formed. If fertilization of the egg cell fails, but that of the polar nuclei is successful, grains are formed that lack embryos.

The oldest, first-differentiated spikelets are at the base of the ear. Eventually the ear terminates with the formation of one or more sterile florets. At the base a ridge, the young collar, encircles the developing ear and represents the first node. The development of an alternative 'lemma appendage' that sometimes replaces the awn, and is known as a hood is of interest [I3,I4,35,4o,83,96]. Initially lemmae destined to bear hoods develop like the awned forms, but the apex begins to grow more slowly, lateral 'wings' grow out, and the apex is formed into a hollow structure, the hood, which mayor may not carry a small awn.
