Kiesselbach, T.A. (1949) The structure and reproduction of corn (Research bulletin: Bulletin of the Agricultural Experiment Station of Nebraska No. 161)
The primary purpose of this paper is to summarize investigations concerning the structure and reproduction of the corn plant (Zea mays L.). Because of wide interest in the reproductive process in connection with breeding and genetic studies the floral development, fertilization, and embryology are especially stressed. The morphology and development of the vegetative organs is also included. The botanical relationship, origin, genetics and breeding of corn are briefly considered.
