The effects of one and two generations of inbreeding were studied in plants from four natural populations of the annual plant, Collinsia heterophylla, using inbred and outcrossed plants generated by hand pollinations to create expected inbreeding coefficients ranging from 0-0.75. The selfing rates of the populations were estimated using allozyme markers to range from 0.37-0.69. Inbreeding depression was mild, ranging from 5-40%, but significant effects were detected for characters measured at… CONTINUE READING
