Discussion and conclusions: Although our results found a low genetic diversity of Tillandsia recurvata, these do not support the idea that it is an autogamous
species, as it was suggested by Soltis et al.
Effect of population size on the mating system in a self-compatible, autogamous
plant, Aquilegia canadensis (Ranunculaceae).
However, tomato plants are also autogamous
, which means that pollination of each flower is by its own pollen and that cross-pollination between flowers, while it may occur, is not needed for fruit production.
I estimated the amount of autogamous
pollination by comparing the stigmatic pollen loads of intact and emasculated flowers.
Flowers of autogamous
racemes were less likely to set fruit than any of the other pollination treatments ([G.
mombin could be considered an autogamous
species, high Nm index could be mainly due to seed dispersal as commercial fruits, because populations are far from each other.
monococcum subsp, aegilopoides and most Aegilops species are considered to be autogamous
(self fertilized) (Peterson, 1965; Hammer, 1980).
This contrasts sharply with 6% of the plants (2/32) in the hand self-pollination or 0% autogamous
selfing treatments (0/15) (Tables 2 and 3).
1]s prevented Stebbins (1957) from obtaining progeny from crosses between the otherwise autogamous
grasses, Elymus and Sitanion.
The species of genus Capsicum are autogamous
and they have perfect flowers, having male and female structures in the same flower, which facilitates reproduction by self- pollination.
recurvatum, fruit and seed set in autogamous
and xenogamous hand pollinations were compared with that in open pollinated controls using ANOVAs.
Species can be classified by their reproduction mode as autogamous
(obligatory or facultative) or allogamous (obligatory or facultative), depending on the pollination mode.
2002)], while autogamous
species have relatively lower percentages of within-accession variation (43% for Hordeum spontaneum K.
of considerable heterozygosity in allozyme surveys of autogamous
Most thrips-mediated pollen movement was probably autogamous
