Özet

Pollen grams of 12 species and 3 varieties of the genus Ebenus L., Leguminosae subfamily papilionoideae have been examined using light microscopy (LM) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). Pollen description of each taxon has been given Pollen grains of Ebenus L. species examined are radially symmetrical, isopolar, tricolpate, prolate rarely perprolate. Their ornamentations are reticulate. The exine structure are similar, ektexine thicker than endexine. The pollen morphology seems to be very similar to each other.
