Pollination Syndromes and Floral Specialization
▪ Abstract Floral evolution has often been associated with differences in pollination syndromes. Recently, this conceptual structure has been criticized on the grounds that flowers attract a broaderExpand

Predicting the probability of outbreeding depression.
Fragmentation of animal and plant populations typically leads to genetic erosion and increased probability of extirpation. Although these effects can usually be reversed by re-establishing gene flowExpand

Implications of different species concepts for conserving biodiversity
The ∼26 definitions of species often yield different numbers of species and disparate groupings, with financial, legal, biological and conservation implications. Using conservation geneticExpand

Pollination and seed predation by moths on Silene and allied Caryophyllaceae: evaluating a model system to study the evolution of mutualisms.
Nursery pollinators, and the plants they use as hosts for offspring development, function as exemplary models of coevolutionary mutualism. The two pre-eminent examples--fig wasps and yuccaExpand

Inbreeding and Outbreeding Depression in Natural Populations of Chamaecrista fasciculata (Fabaceae)
: The deleterious consequences of inbreeding have been well documented. There are, however, few empirical studies that have examined the consequences of restoring heterozygosity and hence the fitnessExpand

FIVE GENERATIONS OF ENFORCED SELFING AND OUTCROSSING IN MIMULUS GUTTATUS: INBREEDING DEPRESSION VARIATION AT THE POPULATION AND FAMILY LEVEL
The focus of this study was to examine the consequences of five sequential generations of enforced selfing and outcrossing in two annual populations of the mixed‐mating Mimulus guttatus. Our primaryExpand

QUANTIFYING GENE FLOW FROM SPATIAL GENETIC STRUCTURE DATA IN A METAPOPULATION OF CHAMAECRISTA FASCICULATA (LEGUMINOSAE)
Abstract An extensive allozyme survey was conducted within a natural “meta” population of the native North American annual legume, Chamaecrista fasciculata (Leguminosae) to quantify genetic structureExpand

POPULATION DIFFERENTIATION IN AN ANNUAL LEGUME: LOCAL ADAPTATION
Abstract. Studies of many plants species have demonstrated adaptive genetic differentiation to local environmental conditions. Typically these studies are conducted to evaluate adaptation toExpand

Floral diversity and community structure in Pedicularis (Orobanchaceae)
A pervasive hypothesis at the interface of ecology and evolution is that biotic interactions contribute to regional biodiversity by accelerating adaptation and speciation. We investigated thisExpand
