Because mating system can be influenced by effective neighborhood size, density, and isolation, populations at range peripheries may differ from those in the center. The importance of peripheral populations to conservation and evolution is controversial, and additional information about their genetic structure and evolutionary dynamics will inform conservation strategies. In wind-pollinated species, selfing rate is generally negatively correlated with population size and density, and inbreeding… CONTINUE READING
