In gynodioecious species, male-steriles (termed "females" hereafter) usually exhibit some reproductive advantage over hermaphrodites that allow them to compensate for the loss of male reproductive function. This compensation can result from higher fecundity, vegetative outperformance, and/or lower inbreeding depression. In this study we compared vegetative and reproductive parameters of female and hermaphrodite Daphne laureola individuals in two southeastern Spanish populations and estimated… CONTINUE READING
