Many higher plants produce diaspores with two or more morpho-physiological traits to favor seed establishment and plant dispersion, a strategy known as seed heteromorphism
. This reproductive strategy is found in many plant families and it is particularly common in Asteraceae (Imbert, 2002; Baskin et al., 2014).
was not noticeable, and the nuclear fission image was not apparent.
in the resected specimens revealed that seven patients had low-grade adenoma, seven had high-grade adenoma, and two had adenocarcinoma.
In vivo, morphological observation illustrated that heteromorphism
were not obvious in the cells of HIF-1a/siRNA group and vascular systems were sparse in its transplantation tumor tissue, and immunohistochemistry revealed that both VEGF and CD34 stains were significantly decreased in HIF-1a/siRNA group, and MVD in HIF-1a/siRNA group (7.3+-1.1) were obviously less than that in SCR/siRNA group (17.2+-3.2) (P8 times of erythrocyte diameter were not counted.12 Briefly, the whole section was detected in low power lens (10x10) and the three horizons of the most intensive area (microvascular angiogenic hotspots) were detected.

In Ectadia diuturna, the pattern of heterochromatin distribution has revealed size heteromorphism
of C- bands and differential intensity of rDNA hybridization-signals between homologous chromosomes of long-sized pair.
Variation of seed heteromorphism

occurs also in the X chromosomes of the female complement, which may differ both in centromeric position and size (Peshev 1983).
The obvious heteromorphism
observed in both types of sperm bundles in T.
Although we are inclined to believe that having a larger seed in comparison to low altitude species may be advantageous for alpine species of higher altitudes, we also accept that this 'trend' is not universal--even within an individual plant the seeds produced vary in size significantly, presumably due to numerous intrinsic and extrinsic factors, e.g., maternal environment, heteromorphism
The second edition contains additional information on breaking of physical dormancy, effects of inbreeding depression and seed heteromorphism
as well as new topics like the role of seed banks and the relationship between seed germination and climate change.
There was no evidence of occurrence of chromosomal heteromorphism
related to sex.
