Abstract

Measures the effects of inbreeding depression on on survival and fertility of Lobelia cardinalis and L. siphilitica. Self-pollination did not affect the number and size of seeds; however, inbreeding depression affected seed maturation and germination. Although there were differences between species and among populations, high levels of inbreeding depression were observed in these two species.
