Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue on plant mating systems will focus on methods for measuring plant mating systems and genes associated with plant mating systems. In particular, it will focus on recent developments in molecular techniques that facilitate more efficient and cost-effective research on mating patterns in large natural populations. 

Prof. Dr. Kermit Mark Ritland
Guest Editor
