Cytological studies of sporogenesis, gametogenesis and early embryology were undertaken to ascertain the status of the sexual reproductive potential in Texas Wildrice, an endangered endemic of the San Marcos River, Hays County, Texas. Megasporogenesis and megagametogenesis appear normal and conform closely to observations of other members of the genus. Microsporogenesis and microgametogenesis, pollination and early embryo development also appear regular. The present condition of the species is attributed to environmental rather than cytological factors.
