Figure 2

The relationship between estimated levels of self-fertilization in progeny ( s m =1 −t m ) and the inbreeding coefficient ( F ) of adult R. ferrugineum individuals in heathland patches. N =24 patches (estimates of F for four patches are not presented because bootstrap distributions were irregular due to the small number of individuals per patch; see Table 2). The solid line shows the expected relationship between s and F in patches at equilibrium (Fe) with no ID (ID =1 − [fitness of selfed progeny/fitness of outcrossed progeny] =0). In the case of ID, data points are below this solid line.
