Abstract

Examines the genetic structure of Passiflora incarnata in recently disturbed sites. Since P. incarnata reproduces sexually and asexually, genetic sampling was done at three spatial scales: within a patch, among patches separated by 250 m, and between sites separated by 10 km. Most genetic variation with within patches and did not vary much among patches. This indicates that P. incarnata was primarily reproducing sexually.
