We studied the early stages of embryo formation in apomictic Poa pratensis L. It was shown that during transition to parthenogenesis, at least at the initial stages of embryogenesis, the algorithm of development of the sexual embryo is preserved. This could be due to the system of genetic control of embryogenesis, common for amphimixis and apomixis. We described asynchrony of developmental processes both within the efflorescence (asynchronous maturation of seed-buds) and within the seed-bud and even gametophyte (different timing of induction of apoarchesporic initials and oospores). This feature of pseudogamous apomicts allows them to produce simultaneously both sexual and apomictic progenies.
