Taxonomy and Biogeography of Apomixis in Angiosperms and Associated Biodiversity Characteristics
The significantly-enriched representations of apomicts among highly diverse and geographically-extensive taxa, from genera to orders, support the conclusion that range expansions and diversifications at the species and genus levels may occur more rapidly upon reversion to sexuality. Expand
The structure and origin of species
Phenomenon of polyembryony. Genetic heterogeneity of seeds
The phenomenon of polyembryony and genetic heterogeneity of seeds is essential for development of the theory of reproduction and applied research related to seed productivity of plants. Expand
A New Way of Rice Breeding: Polyploid Rice Breeding
In recent years, PMeS lines and neo-tetraploid rice lines with stable high seed setting rate characteristics have been successively selected, breaking through the bottleneck of low seedSetting rate of polyploid Rice. Expand
Assessment of facultative apomixis in Commiphora wightii (Burseraceae): A detailed study by controlled pollination followed by histology and flow cytometry
The results of the study confirmed both type of reproduction i.e., sexual as well as apomictic exists among accessions of C. wightii and revealed that pollination increased the fruit set percentage and fruit filling over non- pollinated or open-pollinated plants. Expand
Imitation of fermenting fruits in beetle-pollinated Calycanthus occidentalis (Calycanthaceae)
Overall, the scent of C. occidentalis is similar to that of other plant species that release scents reminiscent of fermenting fruits and are pollinated by beetles and/or drosophilid flies, such as Asimina triloba, Ceropegia crassifolia and Arum palaestinum. Expand
Poa liuliangii and P. kengii (Poaceae), two new species from the Hengduan Mountains of southwest China
Two new species, Poa liuliangii and P. kengii, from the Hengduan Mountains (Sichuan province of southwest China) are described and illustrated. Detailed description and comparison tables are alsoExpand

The analysis of data on fruitàge, heterospermy, viability of seeds and seed progeny in Orchis purpurea at the northeastern limit of distribution (Krasnodar region and Crimea) was carried out. TheExpand
Endosperm of Angiosperms and Genomic Imprinting
A brief overview of a wide diversity of embryo sacs and endosperm types and ploidy levels, as well as their distribution in the angiosperm families, positioned according to the Angiosperm Phylogeny Group IV (APG IV) phylogenetic classification is provided. Expand
