Preferential outcrossing in the complex species Persoonia mollis R. Br. (Proteaceae)

  title={Preferential outcrossing in the complex species Persoonia mollis R. Br. (Proteaceae)},
  author={Siegfried L. Krauss},
The breeding system of the extremely diverse species Persoonia mollis (Proteaceae) was characterized to, firstly, assess its importance as a mechanism promoting diversity and, secondly, to investigate the mode of control over selective fruit abortion. Fruit quantity and quality was assessed following self-and outcross-pollination manipulations. Twenty percent of outcrossed flowers set fruit, compared to only 1% of flowers fertilized with self-pollen. Fruits produced by self-fertilization were… CONTINUE READING
