EACH OF THE VARIOUS TECHNIQUES that has been utilized in the study of pollen morphology has limitations as well as advantages. It is essential, therefore, that the conclusions attained by the use of any single technique be in harmony with those obtained by other techniques. This is particularly true where pollen is subjected to more or less drastic treatments during preparation for visual examination . In all such cases evidence should be obtained regarding the effects of each treatment upon the normal form and structure of living pollen.
