Variation in mating system traits can have important consequences for plant populations by affecting reproductive assurance, the expression of inbreeding depression, and the colonization of and persistence in new or altered habitats. Environmental stressors, such as drought, have been hypothesized to induce higher rates of self-fertilization, yet this hypothesis has rarely been tested. Here we measure the response of two sister species of self-compatible annual herbs from contrasting habitats… CONTINUE READING
