Apomixis is asexual reproduction without fertilization ��� developing or
producing without sexual union. This is a botanical term (also known as
apogomy) used with respect to many plants. Apomixis can occur in two
ways: when the embryo arises from unfertilized egg produced without
meiosis, called agamugenesis; a nucellar embryo is formed from
surrounding nucellus tissues.
