Abstract

Analyzes the genetic sources of phenotypic variation in Asclepias incarnata. Maternal effects contributed to 31-64% of the variance in seed mass, 20-37% of the variance in seed number, and 1-7% of fruit set. Interaction effects account for 7-46% of variance in seed mass and 31-39% of variance in seed number.
