Inbreeding, which is common in plants, may increase the vulnerability of populations to natural enemies. Similarly, natural enemies may increase the expression of inbreeding depression in their hosts, resulting in altered selection on host mating-system evolution. To examine effects of inbreeding on tolerance to herbivory, we transplanted experimentally selfand cross-fertilized plants into four field populations of Mimulus guttatus and applied single Philaenus spumarius (spittlebug) nymphs to… CONTINUE READING
