Reproductive characters associated with breeding behaviour inBeta sect.Beta (Chenopodiaceae)
- 38 Downloads
Populations of different taxa withinBeta sect.Beta were compared using a number of floral and reproductive characters. Plants which were known to be self-incompatible (through S-allele incompatibility) were found to be morphologically distinct from those which were self-compatible, with the floral characteristics of the latter promoting their autogamy.
