Pollen limitation of plant reproduction: Ecological and evolutionary causes and consequences
Determining whether seed production is pollen limited has been an area of intensive empirical study over the last two decades. Yet current evidence does not allow satisfactory assessment of theExpand
Pollen Limitation of Plant Reproduction: Pattern and Process
▪ Abstract Quantifying the extent to which seed production is limited by the availability of pollen has been an area of intensive empirical study over the past few decades. Whereas theory predictsExpand
Plant mating systems in a changing world.
There is increasing evidence that human disturbance can negatively impact plant-pollinator interactions such as outcross pollination. We present a meta-analysis of 22 studies involving 27 plantExpand
ANALYSIS OF INBREEDING DEPRESSION IN MIXED‐MATING PLANTS PROVIDES EVIDENCE FOR SELECTIVE INTERFERENCE AND STABLE MIXED MATING
Hermaphroditic individuals can produce both selfed and outcrossed progeny, termed mixed mating. General theory predicts that mixed‐mating populations should evolve quickly toward high rates ofExpand

Using both multivariate and univariate regression techniques, I measured selection acting through female reproductive success in two hermaphroditic species with precise pollen placement but differentExpand
EVOLUTIONARY HISTORY OF THE MATING SYSTEM IN AMSINCKIA (BORAGINACEAE)
A survey of restriction site variation in the chloroplast genome of the annual plant genus Amsinckia, together with estimation of outcrossing rates, was conducted to analyze the evolutionary historyExpand
Mutation Rates and Dominance Levels of Genes Affecting Total Fitness in Two Angiosperm Species
Theories about the evolution of sex and the effects of inbreeding depend on knowledge of the mutation rate and dominance level of deleterious alleles affecting total fitness. In two species ofExpand
Variation in seed traits of Lobelia inflata (Campanulaceae): sources and fitness consequences.
Seed germination constitutes an important event in the life cycle of plants. Two related seed traits affect fitness: seed size and the timing of seed germination. In three sets of experiments, we (1)Expand
Correlated evolution of mating system and floral display traits in flowering plants and its implications for the distribution of mating system variation.
Reduced allocation to structures for pollinator attraction is predicted in selfing species. We explored the association between outcrossing and floral display in a broad sample of angiosperms. WeExpand
