Ultimately, it remains to be determined how best to taxonomically treat these highly clonal, possibly apomictic
The hybrid H8 resulted from a cross between a S8 sexual (female genitor) with the KK10 apomictic
plant (male genitor).
After more than 5 years of research using both classical and molecular breeding methods, Kindiger and a team of research associates successfully developed apomictic
corn plants that look, grow, and taste like corn.
Seeds from apomictic
plants, however, yield successive generations with the same characteristics as the original hybrid parent.
Uniquely human commitments to loyalty or compassion (even when they represent what we demand of ourselves as a prerequisite for self-respect) are viewed from this perspective as quaint and parochial, a poor substitute for apomictic
, canonical moral formulae.
Apomyx plans to enter into strategic alliances with seed companies and to develop innovative apomictic
seed products for worldwide distribution and sale.
The study also provided evidence supporting apomictic
reproduction in this species by noting the presence of antheridia but the absence of archegonia.
corn could revolutionize agriculture by giving scientists a tool for developing improved plant varieties to retain desired traits.
triploid species is here renamed Myriopteris windhamii.
though these populations do not contain apomictic
plants and consist of
plants, embryos grow from cells without being fertilized by pollen from males, thus preventing introduction of undesired traits.
New and noteworthy species of Boechera (Brassicaceae) II: Apomictic
For example, the literature on apomictic
crop species is
plants, the embryos grow from vegetative cells without being fertilized by pollen, which contains the male sperm in plants.
affinis, on the contrary, presented low genetic diversity and it has an apomictic
