Document Description
The California Department of Fish and Wildlife is issuing a permit to Lauren Ruane pursuant to Fish and Game Code section 2081(a) for a project to investigate the effect of pollen and stigma age on seed set and viability in P. hirsuta. Pollination treatments will be performed on 65 plants between April and May 2017. Six flowers per plant will be included in the experiment, four to receive pollination treatment and two controls. After pollination, flowers will be monitored daily. Fruits will be collected into envelopes before they open. After the fruits ripen, the number of seeds produced will be counted and recorded. Seed viability will be assessed via a germination experiment.
