is self-compatible. The fact that the stigmata were receptive and the opening of anthers occurred before the calyptra fall shows cleistogamy, a form of self-pollination reported in other species (MULLINS et al., 1992).
Self-compatibility and autonomous self-fertilization.--To determine whether Galax is self-compatible and whether the degree of self-compatibility differs between cytotypes, we self-pollinated flowers on six plants in single cytotype populations and three diploid and three tetraploid plants in mixed cytotype populations.
However, our results for offspring production were similar to those in self-compatible basom-matophoran snails, in which cross-fertilization requires copulation; individuals presented with mates can either cross-fertilize or self (Escobar et al., 2007, 2011).

The cultivar, "Q10-33-1," produced a lot of seeds after selfing in 2011, indicating that this cultivar is self-compatible. However, we did not know if its progeny inherited its characteristics of self-compatibility.
Although flowers with a wide availability of resources are heavily visited, many self-compatible species have a high degree of inbreeding caused by geitonogamous pollination, apomixis, and also automatic self-pollination (BAWA, 1979).
The four o'clock family (Nyctaginaceae) contains both self-compatible and self-incompatible species.
The relationship between the self-compatibility and self-incompatibility alleles is described as S > [S.sup.h] > s with S the self-incompatible (thrum) allele dominant to both [S.sup.h] for self-compatible (homostyly) and to s, the self-incompatible (pin) allele.
The species is self-compatible. There were differences in hand-pollination treatments between long and medium stamens in fruit set, as well as in vitro differential fertility between their pollen grains.
The entire Internet needs a solution that is as self-compatible as the SMTP protocol itself Source Authentication accomplishes this by staying within the SMTP layer for handling replies and recognizing itself.
In the self-compatible Asdepias speciosa, Bookman (1984) contended that insufficient pollination apparently did not explain low fruit set.
It has been 30 years since Baker (1967) reemphasized in these pages the significance of what Stebbins (1957) had termed "Baker's Law," namely, that it is more likely for self-compatible than for self-incompatible individuals to establish a sexually reproducing colony after "long-distance" dispersal, because only the former can do so with a single individual (Baker 1955, 1967).
