Each of these cavities terminates in a fallopian tube, which opens into the capsule of an ovarium.
This however is not the case in respect to the dropsy of the ovarium, or in the hydrocele.
It is prominent and increases to the size of a cherry, occupying the greatest part of the ovarium.
What would the floriculturist care for any change in the structure of the ovarium or of the ovules?
In the ovarium there are six bundles of vessels: R. Brown judged by transverse sections.
Thus, in plants, the office of the pistil is to allow the pollen-tubes to reach the ovules within the ovarium.
Some of these vesicles are situated so near the surface of the ovarium as to be prominent on its surface.
There is great adhesion and extreme displacement of parts where the organs spring from the top of the ovarium.
Again, it is well known that with many plants the ovarium may be fully developed, though pollen be wholly excluded.
Ask your colleagues whether they know anything about the structure of the flower and ovarium in the uppermost flower.
