Inbreeding Effects in Clarkia Tembloriensis (onagraceae) Populations with Different Natural Outcrossing Rates.

Inbreeding depression is commonly observed in natural populations. The deleterious effects of forced inbreeding are often thought to be less pronounced in populations with self-pollinating mating systems than in primarily outcrossing populations. We tested this hypothesis by comparing the performance of plants produced by artificial self- and cross… (More)
