Abstract

There is comparatively little known about the mechanism of dehiscence in dry fruits of the angiosperms. A number of contributions have been made to the cytology of anther dehiscence and dehiscence of spore capsules, but the only research pertaining to dehiscence of fruits has been done by foreign workers; and little of that is more than gross observation. Therefore, aside from the problem's intrinsic interest it has the added feature of opening a relatively new line of study in this country.
