Definition of self-pollinated in US English:



  • See self-pollination

    • ‘Ovules from self-pollinated carpels appear to degenerate early in development.’
    • ‘In contrast, self-pollination was conducted using pollen from dehisced staminate flowers on the same inflorescence or branch as the self-pollinated carpel.’
    • ‘Hand cross-pollination resulted in a non-significant difference in seeds per pod compared with hand self-pollinated flowers.’
    • ‘However, in a separate study, we observed that the amount and elongation rate of self-pollinated pollen tubes in the styles did not differ from those that were cross-pollinated.’
    • ‘Among experimentally self-pollinated flowers, fruit set is lower and seeds are smaller than among cross-pollinated flowers.’
