Abstract Early models of plant mating-system evolution argued that predominant outcrossing and selfing are alternative stable 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

Topics from this paper

Plant Mating Systems Often Vary Widely Among Populations
TLDR
Estimates of outcrossing rates from single populations are often highly unreliable indicators of the mating system of an entire species, underscores the need for studies exploring variation in the relative influence of ecological and genetic factors on the matingSystem and how this varies among populations. Expand
Global biogeography of mating system variation in seed plants.
TLDR
The first global biogeographic analysis of plant mating systems based on 624 published studies from 492 taxa finds a weak decline in outcrossing rate towards higher latitudes and among some biomes, but no biogeographical patterns in the frequency of self-incompatibility. Expand
Evolutionary dynamics of mating system shifts in Arabidopsis lyrata
TLDR
Study of variation in mating system among 18 populations of Arabidopsis lyrata within a phylogenetic context to shed light on the evolution of selfing and of the causes of the shift to selfing. Expand
How and When Does Outcrossing Occur in the Predominantly Selfing Species Medicago truncatula?
TLDR
This work shows that despite a predominantly selfing reproductive mode, M. truncatula displays variation in residual outcrossing rate, and that this trait is likely under a complex determinism combining environmental and genetic factors. Expand
Demography and mating system shape the genome-wide impact of purifying selection in Arabis alpina
TLDR
It is found that outcrossing and mixed-mating populations maintain genetic diversity at similar levels, whereas highly self-fertilizing Scandinavian A. alpina show a strong reduction in genetic diversity, most likely as a result of a postglacial colonization bottleneck. Expand
Correlated evolution of mating system and floral display traits in flowering plants and its implications for the distribution of mating system variation.
TLDR
It is suggested that covariation between mating systems and total allocation to attraction can explain the deviation from expected trade-offs between flower size and number. Expand
Mixed mating in the ‘obligately outcrossing’Tolpis (Asteraceae) of the Canary Islands
TLDR
The present results provide the first evidence for mixed mating in what has previously been interpreted to be an ‘obligately outcrossing’ island lineage, and suggests that more detailed investigations of the breeding systems of putatively obligate outcrossed species are needed to test some of the long-held assumptions that the results would invariably show high outCrossing. Expand
Demography and mating system shape the genome-wide impact of purifying selection in Arabis alpina
TLDR
The results demonstrate that intermediate levels of outcrossing may allow efficient selection against harmful alleles whereas demographic effects can be important for relaxed purifying selection in highly selfing populations, and suggest that mixed-mating populations can avoid the negative evolutionary consequences of high self-fertilization rates. Expand
Effect of inbreeding depression on outcrossing rates among populations of a tropical pine.
TLDR
In the neotropical Pinus chiapensis inbreeding depression was evaluated using regression analysis relating progeny F-values with seed germinability, the mating system was analysed in three populations with contrasting size, using isozymes, and a corrected outcrossing rate was obtained. Expand
MATING SYSTEM, HALDANE'S SIEVE, AND THE DOMESTICATION PROCESS
TLDR
This study found that adaptation to cultivation mostly proceeded through the selection of recessive and partially recessive genes in predominantly selfing species whereas a much larger fraction of domestication‐related QTL were dominant or partially dominant in outcrossers, as expected under Haldane's sieve.

TLDR
This work reanalyzed the most recent data and plot outcrossing rates as a continuous variable rather than as a class variable, suggesting that mating system is best considered a continuous rather than a discrete character of plant populations. Expand
The Evolutionary Enigma of Mixed Mating Systems in Plants: Occurrence, Theoretical Explanations, and Empirical Evidence
▪ Abstract Mixed mating, in which hermaphrodite plant species reproduce by both self- and cross-fertilization, presents a challenging problem for evolutionary biologists. Theory suggests thatExpand

TLDR
The observation that some species possess mixed mating systems does not necessarily indicate that they have reached an evolutionary equilibrium, and the increasing efforts to understand the evolution of plant mating systems are a clear indication of how much there is yet to learn. Expand

A bimodal distribution of outcrossing rates was observed for natural plant populations, with more primarily selfing and primarily outcrossing species, and fewer species with intermediate outcrossingExpand

TLDR
The results suggest that the probability of successful outcrossed reproduction plays at least as important a role in determining the mating system of plants as inbreeding depression. Expand
On the Evolution of Plant Mating Systems: A Reply to Waller
TLDR
The models, which allow inbreeding depression to change with the selfing rate, predict hat predominant selfing and predominant outcrossing represent alternative, stable states of the mating system, and an empirical test of this prediction indicated that the distribution foutcrossing rates for all species taken together ismarkedly bimodal.

TLDR
The results from experiments with marker genes and floral manipulations provide evidence for the function of herkogamy and dichogamy in reducing self-pollination and promoting pollen dispersal and evidence is presented indicating that increased selfing resulting from changes to floral design, or geitonogsamy in large clones, can act as a stimulus for the evolution of dioecy.

Evolution of intermediate selfing rates in plants: pollination ecology versus deleterious mutations
TLDR
Approaches such as this that explicitly incorporate the interdependence of selfing, ovule fertilization, and male outcrossing may help explain the persistence of intermediate selfing rates in animal-pollinated plants. Expand
The evolution of self‐fertilization and inbreeding depression under pollen discounting and pollen limitation
TLDR
It is suggested that mixed mating systems with high selfing rates can be maintained by selection, whereas mixed mating Systems with low to moderate selfing rate are more likely attributable to unavoidable geitonogamous selfing. Expand
Progress in understanding pollination systems in New Zealand
TLDR
It is shown that recent studies of the angiosperm flora reveal sexual systems (sexual dimorphism, self‐incompatibility, monoecy, dichogamy, and herkogamy) that usually involve a dependence on pollen vectors, making much of the flora vulnerable to declines in pollinator service. Expand
