Localized dispersal and mating may genetically structure plant populations, resulting in matings among related individuals. This biparental inbreeding has significant consequences for the evolution of mating systems, yet is difficult to estimate in natural populations. We estimated biparental inbreeding in two populations of the largely self-fertilizing plant Aquilegia canadensis using standard inference as well as a novel experiment comparing apparent selfing between plants that were randomly… CONTINUE READING
