Because of the long-term allogamy, tea plants might have a wide range of genetic backgrounds that affect the absorption and accumulation of F [20,21].
The necessity of alfalfa cultivation could be attributed to changeable morphological and physiological features such as allogamy and autotetraploidy which determine alfalfa high forage yield (Radovic et al., 2009).
Protogyny and protandry are the underlying mechanisms favouring allogamy in monoecious palms.
Are autogamous lineages evolutionary dead ends as is commonly assumed (Lewis 1954; Stebbins 1957, 1974; Jain 1976; but see Barrett and Shore 1987), or are there evolutionary reversals from autogamy to allogamy?
amaena pollination mechanism allows first for allogamy and then secondary pollen presentation and that the timing pollen viability and stigma receptivity are asynchronous.
On the other hand, the genetic variability of guava and araca due to the typical allogamy of these species is another reason to collect and test new genotypes, increasing the possibilities of finding new sources of resistance and compatibility of grafting.
Based on the present results, the species analyzed of the Caespitosa group of Paspalum may be characterized by (1) the predominance of sexuality (and the inferred allogamy) in all five species, (2) the presence of two ploidy levels (diploid and tetraploid) in P.
Since some studies have demonstrated high levels of autogamy in the common bean and others have demonstrated allogamy when pollinators are abundant (Brunner and Beaver, 1989; Triana et al., 1993; Ibarra-Perez et al., 1997), the statistics just mentioned were calculated twice: assuming Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium (H-W) (Fis = 0) and assuming autogamy (Fis = 0.95) to decide which assumption should be made under our study conditions.
cross-fertilization is outbreeding, allogamy and xenogamy (fertilization
Pollination is predominantly by allogamy (SANTANA; ANGARITA, 1999), although selfing can occur (FISCHER et al., 2014).
Features of the Fernandezian Wahlenbergia, like protandry, nectar, and secondary pollen presentation (by pollen-collecting hairs on the style), reduce self-pollination and suggest ancestral allogamy and biotic pollination.
