Apogamy is the development of an unusual haploid sporophyte from the gametophyte without the fusion of gametes.

Male apomixis paternal apomixis involves replacement of the genetic material of egg by the pollen that of egg. Bot Gaz 3: In plants with both apomictic and meiotic embryology, the proportion of the different types can differ at different times of year, [11] and photoperiod can also change the proportion.

Natural apogamy is common in ferns like Dryopteris, Adiantum, Osmunda, Pteris etc.

You do not currently have access to this article. Ultrastructural aspects of apospory and apogamy.

Considerable confusion has resulted because diplospory is often defined to involve the megaspore mother cell only, but a number of plant families have a multicellular archesporium and the megagametophyte could originate from another archesporium cell. Parthenogenesis apogamy and apospory in alaria crassifolia laminariales.

In heterosporous forms, 2 types of spores develop i. Apospory is the development of unusual diploid gametophyte from the vegetative parts of sporophyte and not from the spores.

In Embryology of angiosperms.

In plants with independent gametophytes notably fernsthe term is still used interchangeably with “apomixis”, and both refer to the formation of sporophytes by parthenogenesis of gametophyte cells. Apogamy is a related term that has had various meanings over time. The sporophytes of plants of these groups may also have the ability to form a plant that looks like a gametophyte but with the ploidy level of the sporophyte, a phenomenon known as apospory.

Agamospermy occurs mainly in two forms: In adventitious embryony sporophytic apomixisan embryo is formed directly not from a gametophyte from nucellus or integument tissue see nucellar embryony.
