- ... We studied the breeding systems of four populations of Enterolobium cyclocarpum (guanacaste, earpod tree) in Costa Rica. Multilocus estimates of the outcrossing rate indicate that E. cyclocarpum is a predominant outcrossing species (t(m) ranged between 0.881 and 0.901) and biparental inbreeding is low (range between 0.058 and 0.079). Overall, our analyses showed significant differences in the gene ...
