Apomixis  is a difficult-to-analyse trait with a complex molecular basis and a  substantive effect on the biology of a species. Thus, apomixis is an  interesting characteristic for researchers and students working in  different fields of plant science and agriculture, and technological  advances are enabling and making apomixis studies more common.

Apomixis in Angiosperms: Mechanisms, Occurrences, and Biotechnology provides a systematic introduction to the mechanisms and developmental  types of apomixis along with an overview of alternative methodologies  for identifying apomixis and a detailed reassessment of the occurrences  of apomictic species among angiosperm families. Optional methods are  illustrated with examples of all types of apomixis and biological levels  of analysis, i.e. cells, ovules, seeds and offspring. Data on apomictic  species are collected in tables along with information on ploidy, type  of apomixis and references. Occurrences of apomixis are briefly  discussed in phylogenetic and evolutionary contexts. An outline of the  molecular basis of apomixis in plants is presented, together with  prospects and challenges that remain for its biotechnological  exploitation.

This book:

  • Provides a systematic overview of the mechanisms of apomixis, developmental types and methodology for apomixis research.
  • Reassesses apomixis at the species level in angiosperm families.
  • Contains tables summarizing relevant information on apomixis.
  • Analyses occurrences of apomixis in phylogenetic and evolutionary contexts.
  • Outlines the molecular basis and biotechnological perspective of apomixis breeding.

This  book presents an accessible overview of apomixis research and a curated  dataset of apomictic species. It serves as a reference book for  students, researchers and citizen scientists interested in apomixis, as  well as researchers, business innovators and entrepreneurs pursuing  apomixis breeding. It can also be used as a textbook in graduate courses  on plant reproduction.
