Abstract: The pollen morphology of 2 species of the genus Cornus L.
Although several researches have been conducted about the genus Cornus in the field of systematic botany (Chamberlain, 1972; Krussmann, 1976; Kayacik, 1982; Karlioglu, 2014), there have been mostly studies on the pollen morphology of Cornaceae in the field of palynology (Erdtman, 1952; Chao, 1954; Moore and Webb, 1978; Ferguson, 1966; Perveen and Qaiser, 2002).
