Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Chimeras (or chimaeras) in botany are usually single organisms composed of two genetically different types of tissue. They occur in plants, on the same general basis as with animal chimeras. However, unlike animal chimeras, both types of tissues may have originated from the same zygote, and the difference is often due to mutation during ordinary cell division. The word chimera in these senses is a reference to the monstrous chimera of ancient Greek mythology, a legendary beast made up of parts of several different animals.show more
