Research Setting(s): Greenhouse
Species Referenced: Aquilegia canadensis (Eastern red columbine),
AbstractExamines the relationship between population size and outcrossing in Aquilegia canadensis populations in Ontario, Canada. This species is highly self-compatible and can set seeds in the absence of a pollinator. The article discusses effects on inbreeding depression and seed germination.
