Abstract: Germination of Norway spruce (Picea abies) and Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris) pollen decreased during exposure to open air conditions. Usually more than half of the pollen remained germinable after a few days outdoors, but following more than four days outdoors the germination became very low. This study supports the opinion that pollen in the atmosphere remains viable long enough to allow for long-distance gene flow by pollen migration, as an important factor in genetic management of conifers and in evolution, maintaining diversity and potential for adaptation.
