Dear Network, can anyone direct me to reviews or papers, ideas or facts
concerning the requirements for seed development in a silique?  Is the
double fertilization of both the egg and the secondary endosperm an
absolute requirement.  Is pollen tube penetration sufficient or even
necessary?  In other word, absent a completely normal embryo or egg sac,
what are the minimal inductive events required for seed development and
maturation?
                Thank you in advance, Cheers, John R. Jordan.
