Mating system and the hybridization between self-compatible Phlox cuspidata and self-incompatible Phlox drummondii
Author(s): L. G. Ruane
Journal: Evolutionary Ecology
Article Topic(s): Pollination
Research Setting(s): Greenhouse
Species Referenced: Phlox drummondii (Annual phlox),
AbstractEvaluates the effects of self-incompatibility in Phlox drummondii and P. cuspidata on hybridization between the species. The article concludes that early self-pollination can decrease hybridization in P. cuspidata. Self-incompatibility may increase hybridization in P. drummondii.
