Abstract

Investigates the relationship between population size and the inbreeding levels and fitness of Aquilegia canadensis in Ontario, Canada. Population size was positively correlated with reproductive output (number of plants and number of fruits per plant). However, isolated island populations did not have lower reproductive output or fitness than mainland populations.
