Advantages of chasmogamy and cleistogamy in a perennial Glycine clandestina Wendl. (Fabaceae)
Dimorphic strategies for sexual reproduction are common in plants and their evolutionary dynamics is one of the central themes in plant evolutionary biology. True cleistogamy, or CLOP, is one such strategy where individuals use two types of flowers for reproduction: normal chasmogamous (or OP) flowers, which are open for insect pollination and so able to outcross; and reduced, closed cleistogamous (or CL) flowers specifically modified for self-pollination.
