: The deleterious consequences of inbreeding have been well documented. There are, however, few empirical studies that have examined the consequences of restoring heterozygosity and hence the fitness of inbred populations by conducting interpopulation crosses and measuring the performance of later-generation hybrids under field conditions. We conducted interpopulation crosses of 100 m to 2000 km, which spans the range of Chamaecrista fasciculata ( Fabaceae) in eastern North America. We then… Expand

INTRASPECIFIC HYBRIDIZATION AND THE RECOVERY OF FITNESS IN THE NATIVE LEGUME CHAMAECRISTA FASCICULATA
TLDR
The overall gain in fitness with increased recombination suggests that hybridization and recombination may provide the necessary genetic variation for adaptive evolution within species. Expand
INTRASPECIFIC HYBRIDIZATION AND THE RECOVERY OF FITNESS IN THE NATIVE LEGUME CHAMAECRISTA FASCICULATA
Abstract Genetic incompatibilities and low offspring fitness are characteristic outcomes of hybridization between species. Yet, the creative potential of recombination following hybridizationExpand
Demographic consequences of inbreeding and outbreeding in Arnica montana: a field experiment
TLDR
The observed higher survival of seedlings as compared with seeds suggests that it is better to plant individuals than to sow, and significant differences among populations for all measured fitness components suggest that reinforcement is best achieved using material from several populations. Expand
THE FITNESS EFFECTS OF OUTCROSSING IN CALYLOPHUS SERRULATUS, A PERMANENT TRANSLOCATION HETEROZYGOTE
  • D. Heiser, R. Shaw
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Evolution; international journal of organic evolution
  • 2006
TLDR
Investigation of the effect of mating distance on progeny fitness in Calylophus serrulatus, a primarily autogamous, permanent translocation heterozygote that is restricted to prairie fragments in the North American tallgrass prairie region finds mean fitness is maintained in the context of severe fragmentation of its populations. Expand
THE FITNESS EFFECTS OF OUTCROSSING IN CALYLOPHUS SERRULATUS, A PERMANENT TRANSLOCATION HETEROZYGOTE
Abstract Small and relatively isolated populations that occupy fragmented habitat are at risk of local extinction. However, fitness consequences of fragmentation related to mating distance, such asExpand
Effects of inbreeding and interpopulation crosses on performance and plasticity of two generations of offspring of a declining grassland plant.
TLDR
Investigation of the effects of selfing and of within and between population crosses on reproduction and the performance of two generations of offspring of the declining grassland plant Saxifraga granulata finds continuous inbreeding may drastically reduce the fitness of plants, but effects may be environment-dependent. Expand
Outbreeding effects in an inbreeding insect, Cimex lectularius
TLDR
It was found that outbreeding led to increased starvation resistance compared to inbred families, but this benefit was lost after two generations of outbreeding, and the consequences of these results are discussed. Expand
POPULATION DIFFERENTIATION IN THE BEETLE TRIBOLIUM CASTANEUM. I. GENETIC ARCHITECTURE
TLDR
The view that genetic incompatibilities responsible for postzygotic isolation, an important component of speciation, may be a natural but serendipitous consequence of nonadditive genetic effects and structured populations is supported. Expand
Inbreeding and inbreeding depression in a threatened endemic plant, the African violet (Saintpaulia ionantha ssp. grotei), of the East Usambara Mountains, Tanzania
TLDR
The results of this study suggest that inbreeding and subsequent inbreeding depression are potential threats to the survival of Saintpaulia populations. Expand
Reproductive Isolation in Fragmented Wild Populations of Opuntia streptacantha
TLDR
Cross-pollinations between individuals of isolated populations of O. streptacantha showed low performance of out-crossing as indicated by the low number of pollen tubes that reached the base of the style, the ovules, and the low values of fruit set and seed set. Expand

  • C. Fenster

TLDR
It is likely that genetic drift plays a major role in determining the distribution of genetic variation in this population of the annual legume Chamaecrista fasciculata. Expand
POPULATION DIFFERENTIATION IN AN ANNUAL LEGUME: GENETIC ARCHITECTURE
TLDR
This study used a quantitative genetic design to quantify the contribution of epistasis to population divergence for fitness components of a native annual legume, Chamaecrista fasciculata, and concludes that the epistasis documented in this study reflects interactions among linked loci. Expand
POPULATION DIFFERENTIATION IN AN ANNUAL LEGUME: LOCAL ADAPTATION
TLDR
It is suggested that metapopulation processes and temporal environmental variation act together to reduce local adaptation, except over long distances, as measured by a home‐site fitness advantage. Expand
THE GENETIC INTERPRETATION OF INBREEDING DEPRESSION AND OUTBREEDING DEPRESSION
  • M. Lynch
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Evolution; international journal of organic evolution
  • 1991
TLDR
A general expression is presented for the expected phenotype of an individual under the joint influence of inbreeding and crossbreeding, a simple function of the inbreeding coefficient, of source and hybridity indices ofCrossbreeding, and of specific forms of gene action. Expand
Hybrid Origins of Plant Species
TLDR
Experimental, theoretical, and empirical studies of homoploid hybrid speciation suggest that it is feasible, although evolutionary conditions are stringent, and hybridization may be important as a stimulus for the genetic or chromosomal reorganization envisioned in founder effect and saltational models of speciation. Expand
Environmental Dependency of Inbreeding Depression: Implications for Conservation Biology
TLDR
It is found that the rank fitness order of lineages differs between environments; lineages of high fitness in one environment may have low fitness in another environment; this change in rank is evident in a significant genotype-by-environment interaction for inbreeding depression for both females and males.

  • Biology, Medicine
  • Evolution; international journal of organic evolution

TLDR
The consequences of selfing were examined for a population of self‐compatible, protandrous, Sabatia angularis L., suggesting that inbreeding depression in S. angularis is strong enough to maintain outcrossing in the study population. Expand
GENE FLOW IN CHAMAECRISTA FASCICULATA (LEGUMINOSAE) I. GENE DISPERSAL

  • 1991
TLDR
Both pollen and seed dispersal components of gene flow were examined in the annual plant Chamaecrista fasciculata (Leguminosae) and quantified in terms of Wright's neighborhood area to determine whether pollinations should be weighted differentially across the flowering season. Expand
THE EFFECT OF NUCLEAR AND CYTOPLASMIC GENES ON FITNESS AND LOCAL ADAPTATION IN AN ANNUAL LEGUME, CHAMAECRISTA FASCICULATA
TLDR
The contribution of nuclear and cytoplasmic genes to fitness components varied across sites and years, suggesting that experiments should be replicated and conducted under natural conditions to understand the influence of these genomes and their interactions to population differentiation. Expand

The results suggest that the contribution of enantiostyly to selfing is minimal and may be reduced if pollinators discriminate among the floral types. Expand
