The results indicated that cleistogamy
might occur in the papaya tree, which enables selfpollination.
Two new species and notes on the occurrence of cleistogamy
in the section Leptis.
Variation in the degree of cleistogamy
within and among species of the grass Danthonia.
Roundhead lespedeza plants contains both cleistogamous (self-pollinated) and chasmogamous (cross-pollinated) flowers with most seed set occurring thought cleistogamy
(Cole and Biesboer, 1992).
We have no estimates of inbreeding in these populations, but previous results support the idea that cleistogamy
is more prevalent on the hillside than the floodplain (Bennington and McGraw 1995a).
, a sexual breeding system defined as the production of
and chasmogamy in Bromus carinatus Hook.
1997), while cleistogamy
is very common in the latter two families
Environmental and genetic determinants of cleistogamy
in a natural population of the grass Danthonia spicata.
In species with cleistogamy
, pollen grains from cleistogamous flowers contain starch, whereas those of chasmogamous flowers are devoid of it (Franchi et al., 1996).
Environmental control of cleistogamy
in prairie grass (Bromus unioloides HBK).
Some flowers have autogamous pollination mechanisms, such as cleistogamy
, that provide high reliability of success with little or no random variation.
