What should be added?
There should be a comparison between self-pollination and cross-pollination. What other flowers/plants use self-pollination? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jafox93 (talk • contribs) 19:12, 1 May 2012 (UTC)
I believe that this page should be split into 'Self-Fertility' and 'Self-pollination'. Self-fertility is used to describe when the pollen from the plant is able to be accepted by itself. This can mean that a vector, such as bees, is still required to transfer the pollen from the anther to the stigma. This is required when the anther is at a level which is too distant from the stigma to allow for the pollen to transfer at time of dehiscence. Self-pollination is then used to describe the ability of a flower to transfer the pollen from the anther to the stigma without requiring a vector, ie the pollen is close enough to make the 'leap' during dehiscence. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 23:19, 7 April 2016 (UTC)
- Some work done. I think the basic pieces of material are around here somewhere so page splitting is probably not required, but they have been poorly linked together. Sminthopsis84 (talk) 15:09, 8 April 2016 (UTC)
Delete page and point at asexual reproduction page?
Stolen from Asexual_reproduction page, we have some more examples:
Van Der Hulst, R G M; Mes, TH; Falque, M; Stam, P; Den Nijs, JC; Bachmann, K (2003). "Genetic structure of a population sample of apomictic dandelions". Heredity. 90 (4): 326–335. PMID 12692586. doi:10.1038/sj.hdy.6800248.
that page is much more extensive and seems to contain all the information that is here. So maybe this page should simply point at that page?
- Self pollination isn't asexual reproduction but it is sexual reproduction - there is still fertilization going on.
- Parts of this article are confusing. 80% hermaphroditic and 5% monoecious? So what are the other 15% supposed to be or is it just assumed? Those also appear to be very imprecise figures.Johnhgagon (talk) 13:19, 21 May 2013 (UTC)
