AbstractDescribes the biology of Heliotropium currassavicum in Egypt, where this species is a serious agricultural weed. Heliotropium curassavicum is able to germinate intermittently and in open areas, contributing to its spread. The species also produces adventitious root buds that promote wide spreading. Chromosomal abnormalities result in reduced pollen fertility and shift reproduction from sexual to vegetative.
