Caption: Illustration showing the development of maize (Zea mays). At bottom left is a mature stem. The female parts are located at the base of the foliage leaves, whilst the male parts are in the tassels at the end (enlarged view at top left). At bottom centre is a hybrid male/female stem showing the development of kernels along the central tassel (enlarged view at top centre). At bottom right is a developing female ear, with the mature female ear shown at top right. Maize is naturally cross- pollinating, although about 5% of ears result from self-pollination. Maize, known as corn in the USA, is the third most important cereal in the World after wheat and rice.
