How plants see themselves--self-incompatibility in flowering plants



How plants see themselves--self-incompatibility in flowering plants



Biologist 49(2): 68-72



Plants have been propagating themselves by cloning for millennia. It is, however, widely recognised that mixing genes with other individuals of the same species makes better evolutionary sense, as it provides the variation that is the raw material for natural selection. How, then, do some plants prevent self-fertilisation?
