AbstractExamines the floral biology and breeding system of Amorpha herbacea var. crenulata in south Florida pine rocklands. This species is predominantly self-incompatible, indicating a reproductive strategy of outcrossing. Since the species is known from only a few localities, it may suffer decreased reproductive fitness if remaining populations are not pollinated.
