Reproduction of embryo that is formed without meiosis or gamete fusion.
Reproduction which has superficial appearance of ordinary sexual cycle (amphimixis) but actually occurs without fertilization and /or meiosis (two successive cell divisions of special kind)
reproduction involving specialized generative tissues, but not dependent on fertilization. Example: dandelion
Reproduction from an unfertilized egg or from somatic cells associated with the egg.
asexual seed produced without the normal fusion of pollen and egg giving rise to seedlings genetically identical to the pod parent; e.g., H. Ventricosa.
n. (Gr. apo, away; mixis, a mixing) in general, reproducing without sexual reproduction; often used to denote seed production without a sexual process having been involved.
any form of asexual reproduction, in particular reproduction by seeds produced without sexual fusion.
any of several kinds of reproduction without fertilization
Asexual reproduction of seeds; vegetative reproduction.
A process of reproduction without fertilization.
Apomixis is a type of reproduction in which a plant produces seeds without fertilization.
asexual reproduction. See also Parthenogenesis, Agamospermy.
In botany, apomixis is asexual reproduction, without fertilization and modified meiosis.The modified meiosis caused seeds that are genetically identical to the parent plant. Although the evolutionary advantages of sexual reproduction are lost, apomixis does pass along traits fortuitous for individual evolutionary fitness.
