Reproductive biology of stellaria longipes as revealed by a cultivation experiment

New Phytologist 85(4): 557-570
Reproductive biology of stellaria longipes as revealed by a cultivation experiment
In cultivation experiments with S. longipes s.l. from Greenland, the life history was studied to find how female plants in this gynodioecious/gynomonoecious breeding system are favored in relation to hermaphrodite plants. The maintenance of the female plants is apparently determined by a combination of differences in length of the reproductive cycle, number of flowers per plant, number of seeds per capsule and sex segregation in the populations. Other factors, which might be sex linked, such as the area of cotyledons and germination pattern, may be important.
