Genetic and evolutionary consequences of small population size in plants: implications for conservation

Genetic and evolutionary consequences of small population size in plants: implications for conservation

Genetics and conservation of rare plants: 3-30

Some of the genetic consequences of small population size in plants are reviewed, with particular attention to the role of genetic bottlenecks in reducing diversity. This is followed by a consideration of mating patterns in small populations and an assessment of the significance of inbreeding depression and heterosis to fitness.
