- ... Background: Mating system and allele dispersal through pollen and seeds influence population genetic constitution and are directly associated with structure and diversity. Petunia secreta is a rare and endemic species that is characterised by high levels of genetic variability and, despite being dependent on bee-pollination, its breeding system is unknown. Aims: In order to understand how a rare a ...
