In contrast to the conditions outlined in the well-known dioecious model, some plant species consist of both hermaphroditic and male sterile, or functionally female, individuals, and are said to be gynodioecious (Frank 1989; Couvet et al.

In gynodioecious species, however, it is possible to have at least a crude estimation of male fitness, since part of the population is male sterile and, therefore, does not contribute with male gametes to the next generation.
