Access to the article is free, however registration and sign-in are required. Plants have evolved several elegant methods to prevent self-fertilization. For example, in many plant families the female stigma is able to immediately recognize and reject male pollen grains from the same plant. The molecular machinery of this self-pollen rejection system has now been described in commercially important Brassica species (Schopfer et al., Stone et al.). Dickinson discusses the new findings in a Perspective.
