What are your experiences, from the practical publishing side, of your diversity of book types and cross-pollination of genres?
All this cross-pollination prompted Politico on Tuesday to question whether Obama and Facebook are getting too cozy.
The blossoms being open to cross-pollination, the male parent is unknown.
What devices are there among the Orchids to bring about cross-pollination?
In such flowers, cross-pollination must of necessity follow.
cross-pollination, be it remembered, is not a cure-all for failures to set fruit.
The ablest patent lawyer in America might not know the difference between a bud and a graft, a layer or cross-pollination.
Here also cross-pollination must take place if seeds are to be formed.
In the large seed gardens the varieties of flowers raised are either many or cross-pollination is carried on.
The trees were growing at such distances from others that cross-pollination was avoided.
The transfer of pollen from the male reproductive organ (an anther or a male cone) of one plant to the female reproductive organ (a stigma or a female cone) of another plant. Insects and wind are the main agents of cross-pollination. Most plants reproduce by cross-pollination, which increases the genetic diversity of a population (increases the number of heterozygous individuals). Mechanisms that promote cross-pollination include having male flowers on one plant and female flowers on another, having pollen mature before the stigmas on the same plant are chemically receptive to being pollinated, and having anatomical arrangements (such as stigmas that are taller than anthers) that make self-pollination less likely.
