A form of self-fertilization in which fission of the cell nucleus occurs without division of the cell, the two pronuclei so formed reuniting to form the synkaryon; in other cases, the cell body also divides, but the two daughter cells immediately conjugate.

As already mentioned, these two mating schemes, P = uN and M = N versus P = M = uN, are the same when the species is autogamic. Therefore, Eq.
This increase in difficulty for collecting from more autogamic species applies to both GC and RS.
As opposed to germplasm collection, it is easier to regenerate more autogamic accessions, assuming GC, IE, and high u because values of [N.sub.e(v)] can be maintained above N.
