Theoretical studies show that, although inbreeding depression (ID) will counterbalance the transmission advantage of selfing, it can only maintain a mixed mating system in plants when at least one of the following two conditions is met: (1) there is a positive association between selfing rates and the level of ID; and (2) ID is greater than 0.5 for the female component of fitness, while the average ID for male and female fitness is less than 0.5. This study tests whether these two conditions… CONTINUE READING
