  • The concept of sexual selection (intrasexual competition for mates and mate preference) is used in revising the classical explanation of dioecy in plants. Male and female functions of hermaphroditic flowers can be subject to different sexual selection pressures, which may conceivably lead to the separation of male and female structures. This suggestion does not exclude genetic advantages that may accrue from outcrossing; the two aspects of selection probably operated together in the evolution… CONTINUE READING
