The orchid Leporella fimbriata propagates vegetatively by means of underground tubers to form dense but discrete patches of plants. Electrophoretic analysis revealed the presence of large clones extending up to 16 m2. Individual clones could constitute an entire patch. Most pollinator movements were within clones. As the orchid is self-compatible this suggested setting rates as high as 70 per cent. However, the adult population genetic structure did not reflect high levels of setting. Rather… CONTINUE READING
