ABSTRACT
A section from the book "Plant" is presented. It explains the different methods of reproducing plants without the use of seeds known as vegetative reproduction which is differentiated from sexual reproduction. It says that vegetative reproduction is useful in creating young plants that are replicas of their parent plants. Methods of vegetative reproduction illustrated in the article include the use of runners, rhizomes, bulbs and tubers.

    By highlighting and merging the frameworks of sexual selection envisioned by Arnold (1994) and Murphy (1998), we discuss how sexual selection can occur in plants even though individuals do not directly interact. We review studies on traits that influence pollen export and receipt in a variety of...

    Caper seed has poor germination because of the seed coat dormancy. Germination of caper seeds are complex traits affected by a wide range of internal and environmental influences. The effects of temperature preconditioning and period on germination of Capparis ovata were examined. Experiments...
