The term polygamomonoecious has two meanings in botany:

  • an individual plant with male, female, and perfect (hermaphrodite) flowers on the same plant, called trimonoecious or polygamomonoecious plants;
  • a species population containing plants that are polygamous and plants that are monoecious. Coconut palms provide a good example of a polygamomonoecious species.
