Abstract

This paper discusses the characters of pollen types from the family Alliaceae J.G. Agardh.The pollen morphology of 13 species of this family native to the forest-steppe region of Mongolia was detail investigated. Plants were collected during field courses and research projects and are deposited in the herbarium of the Mongolian State University of Education.
Chemical preparation was carried out in the Palynological Laboratories at the School of Natural Sciences of the Mongolian State University of Education and the Department of Palynology and Climate Dynamics of the University of Göttingen in Germany.
Pollen morphology ical study can provide an opportunity to recognize the plant morphological similarity and dissimilarity among family, genera and species. Pollen of the family Alliaceae J.G. Agardh. is medium-sized, distal monosulcate, exine thickness varies among species as well.

The greatest diversity in exine ornamentation is observed in the tectate-columellate, tectate-perforate or semitectate structure.
