Abstract Early models of plant mating‐system evolution argued that predominant outcrossing and selfing are laternative stables states. At least for animal‐pollinated species, recent summaries of empirical studies have suggested the opposite‐that outcrossing rates do not show the expected bimodal distribution. However, it is generally accepted that several potential biases can affect conclusions from surveys of published outcrossing rates. Here, we examine one potential bias and find that… Expand
Mating system variation in hybrid zones: facilitation, barriers and asymmetries to gene flow
TLDR
Examining mating system with hybridization provides unique opportunities to understand divergence and the processes underlying reproductive isolation, as well as the two‐way interaction between introgression and the evolution of reproductive systems. Expand

TLDR
A unifying framework is provided, quantify how selfing affects the maintenance of polymorphism and the efficacy of the different form of balancing selection, and it is shown that they can be classified into two main categories: overdominance‐like selection, which is strongly affected by selfing, and negative frequency dependent selection,which is barely affected bySelfing, even at multiple loci.

Mating system impacts the genetic architecture of adaptation to heterogeneous environments.
TLDR
The authors' simulations demonstrate that mating system has important impacts on adaptive divergence of traits and the genetic landscape underlying that divergence, as well as the genetic architecture of adaptation. Expand
How does selfing affect the genetic variance of quantitative traits? An updated meta‐analysis on empirical results in angiosperm species
TLDR
It is found that the fraction of additive genetic variance is negatively correlated with the selfing rate, and some nonadditive components of variance become selectable under inbreeding and may restore some genetic variance in predominantly selfing populations; it remains, however, uncertain how these non additive components will contribute to adaptation. Expand
Genetics of quantitative traits with dominance under stabilizing and directional selection in partially selfing species
TLDR
It is shown that when considering the effect of dominance, the short-term evolutionary potential of populations remains comparable across the entire gradient in outcrossing rates, and genetic associations can even make selfing populations more evolvable on the longer term, reconciling theoretical and empirical results.

Selfing is the safest sex for Caenorhabditis tropicalis
TLDR
Frequent selfing in C. tropicalis may be a strategy to avoid drive-mediated outbreeding depression, andSegregating drivers dramatically reduce fitness, and simulations show that selfing limits their spread. Expand
Effect of partial selfing and polygenic selection on establishment in a new habitat

  • Evolution; international journal of organic evolution
  • 2019
TLDR
The study explores how selfing rate shapes establishment probabilities of founders via effects on both inbreeding depression and adaptability to the new environment, and distinguishes the effects of selfing on the initial fitness of founders from its effects on the long‐term adaptive response of the populations they found.

Reproductive transitions in plants and animals: selfing syndrome, sexual selection, and speciation.
  • A. Cutter

  • 2019
TLDR
Here, links between sexual selection, evolution of selfing, and speciation are synthesized, with particular focus on identifying commonalities and differences between plant and animal systems and pointing to areas warranting further synergy. Expand
Selective Sweeps Under Dominance and Inbreeding
TLDR
This work considers how arbitrary dominance and inbreeding via self-fertilization affect hard and soft sweep signatures in outcrossers and highlights the challenges in distinguishing hard andsoft sweeps, and proposes methods to differentiate between scenarios. Expand
Breeding systems in Cyrtanthus (Amaryllidaceae): variation in self-sterility and potential for ovule discounting.
  • S. D. Johnson, H. C. Butler, A. W. Robertson
  • Medicine, Biology
  • Plant biology
  • 2019
TLDR
Variation in breeding systems among Cyrtanthus species is revealed and the potential for gender conflict in self-sterile species in which ovules are penetrated and disabled by pollen tubes from self-pollen is highlighted. Expand
