In a medium-sized population ofArnica montana, a threatened species in The Netherlands, the breeding system, reproductive success and genetic clonal structure were studied. Pollination experiments suggested thatA. montana is largely self-incompatible. Inbreeding depression was observed for seedling weight but not for fruit weight and germination rate.(More)
We used flow cytometry, chromosome counting and AFLP markers to investigate gene flow from the crop plant oilseed rape, Brassica napus (AACC) to wild B. rapa (AA) in the Netherlands. From 89 B. napus source populations investigated, all near cropping fields or at transhipment sites, only 19 contained a B. rapa population within a 2.5-km radius. During our(More)
Gentianella germanica (Willd.) Börner, a rare plant species, occurs at the margin of its distribution area in the Netherlands. It is found only in isolated patches of chalk grassland surrounded by intensively-used agricultural land. In 1997 and 1998, we investigated the spatial and temporal separation of anthers and stigma in relation to autofertility. We(More)
