Although flowers with a wide availability of resources are heavily visited, many self-compatible species have a high degree of inbreeding caused by geitonogamous pollination, apomixis, and also automatic self-pollination (BAWA, 1979).
Though moderately self-compatible, Astragalus filipes and many other papilionoid legumes are bee pollinated (Kalin Arroyo, 1981).
The four o'clock family (Nyctaginaceae) contains both self-compatible and self-incompatible species.
esculentum in interspecific crosses is better than using the self-incompatible thrum type, as the thrum type carries the alleles of both pin and self-compatible homostyly.
It has been 30 years since Baker (1967) reemphasized in these pages the significance of what Stebbins (1957) had termed "Baker's Law," namely, that it is more likely for self-compatible than for self-incompatible individuals to establish a sexually reproducing colony after "long-distance" dispersal, because only the former can do so with a single individual (Baker 1955, 1967).
It is of major interest to try producing self-compatible clones by doubling the chromosomes as was done with the vine-cacti and some other plants (Cohen & Tel-Zur 2012).
2] progeny, plants with self-incompatible pin flowers were pollinated by pollen from self-compatible homomorphic flowers to observe seed shattering.
Most plants in these populations are single-headed and self-compatible, have an approximate plant height of 120 cm, flower 72 d after planting, and a head diameter of 13 cm.
Nonetheless, on Kent Island the species is self-compatible and there is no evidence of inbreeding depression with regard to fruit set, fruit capsule size or seeds per capsule.
