Polyembryony is the phenomenon of two or more embryos developing from a single fertilized egg. [1] [2] [3] Due to the embryos resulting from the same egg, the embryos are identical to one another, but are genetically diverse from the parents. Opuntia ficus-indica (prickly pear) is a species of cactus that has long been a domesticated crop plant grown in agricultural economies throughout arid and semiarid parts of the world. Likely having originated in Mexico, O. ficus-indica is the most widespread and most commercially important cactus. Common English names for the plant and its fruit are Indian fig opuntia, Barbary fig, cactus Clade: Tracheophytes. Upon polyembryony and its morphology in Opuntia vulgaris / W.F.

ADVERTISEMENTS: Read this article to learn about the apomixis and polyembryony in flowering plants! Apomixis (Gk. apo- without, mixis- mixing) is a mode of reproduction which does not involve formation of zygote through gametic fusion. It is, therefore, akin to asexual repro­duction. In plants apomixis commonly mimics sexual reproduction but produces seeds without fertilisation, e.g., [ ].

Polyembryony has been classified as either false or true. False polyembryony involves fusion of two or more nucelli or development of two or more embryo sacs within the same nucellus. In true polyembryony the additional embryos arise in the embryo sac either by cleavage of .

Polyembryony, a condition in which two or more embryos develop from a single fertilized egg, forming what in humans is known as identical twins.A common phenomenon in many plant and animal species, polyembryony occurs regularly in the nine-banded armadillo, which usually gives birth to four identical young. Striking examples may be found among parasitic insects of the order Hymenoptera. Current issues are now on the Chicago Journals website. Read the latest issue.
