What should be added?[edit]

There should be a comparison between self-pollination and cross-pollination. What other flowers/plants use self-pollination? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jafox93 (talkcontribs) 19:12, 1 May 2012 (UTC)

A lot of good information here. What is a legume? Mfarrell1 (talk) 13:42, 4 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 220.245.175.223 (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?[edit]

Stolen from Asexual_reproduction page, we have some more examples:

Plants

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.

Confusing[edit]

  • 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)
  • Good point. The remainder would be dioecious. Changes made. Sminthopsis84 (talk) 14:11, 24 July 2015 (UTC)
