Pollen grains were subjected to standard acetolysis standard (Erdtman 1960) in the laboratory of Paleoecology at the National University of Colombia, Medellin.
Pollen material was extracted using Erdtman's acetolysis method (Erdtman, 1960).
Pre-anthesis buds of the three Apiaceae species were collected and transported in glass vials with 70% alcohol to the Palynology Laboratory belongs to the Botanical Department of the National Museum at the Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro-UFRJ (Rio de Janeiro, RJ, Brazil), where they were submitted to the acetolysis method with modified proposals (Erdtman, 1960; Melhem et al.
The samples were treated in the laboratory with 10% KOH, sieved to remove larger pieces of plant material, undergone acetolysis and heavy liquid separation in zinc bromide/hydrochloric acid for the samples in which some mineral residue was present especially in some clayey peat or organic soil samples (Wood et al.
Pollen grains were subjected to weak lactic acetolysis to measure the pollen grains and exine (Raynal & Raynal, 1979).
After cleaning the samples, pollen grains were further dehydrated in glacial acetic acid and prepared for melissopalynological analysis using the acetolysis method (Erdtman, 1960).
Acetolysis (Erdtman 1952) was performed, and semi-permanent slides in glycerin-jelly seal with paraffin were prepared.
Briefly, a sample of 10g of crude honey was dissolved in 20ml of distilled water, centrifuged at 2000rpm during 10min, washed once with 10ml of distilled water, centrifuged again and part of the sediment embedded in glycerin jelly without previous acetolysis.
Cellulose undergoes acetolysis with acetic/nitric reagent forming acetylated cellodextrins which get dissolved and hydrolyzed to form glucose molecules on treatment with 67% [H.
Microscope slides of the pollen samples were made with the acetolysis method (Erdtman 1960; Barth & Luz 1998; Terrab et al.
Acetolysis and treatment with NaOH are known to dissolve the exine of Xyridaceae pollen (Erdtman, 1952; Carlquist, 1960), thus only untreated grains were examined.
Mannan can thus be fragmented by acetolysis, which selectively cleaves the backbone a-1,6-linked mannose units (Fig.
