 Apomixis has never been reported in natural populations of pearl millet [Pennisetum glaucum (L.) R.Br.], although many wild relatives of pearl millet are obligate or facultative aposporous apomicts. Four-nucleate aposporous embryo sacs are formed from somatic cells of the nucellus that do not undergo meiosis. Two mutants of pearl millet, female sterile (fs) and stubby head, have two developmental characteristics in common: a significant reduction in head length compared with the wild-type and… CONTINUE READING
