Species with greater selfing ability are predicted to be better adapted for colonizing new habitats (Baker's Law). Here, we tested an expansion of this hypothesis: that species proficient at autonomous selfing have larger range sizes than their less proficient sister taxa. We also tested competing hypotheses regarding seed production and niche breadth on range size. Floral traits affecting the proficiency of autonomous selfing were measured and seed production was calculated for six sister-taxa… CONTINUE READING
