Density-dependent self-fertilization and male versus hermaphrodite siring success in an androdioecious plant.

Abstract:

Models of mating-system evolution emphasize the importance of frequency-dependent interactions among mating partners. It is also known that outcross siring success and the selfing rate in self-compatible hermaphrodites can be density dependent. Here, we use array experiments to show that the mating system (i.e., the outcrossing rate) and the siring success of morphs with divergent sex allocation strategies are both density dependent and frequency dependent in androdioecious populations of the...
