Abstract:

(Liquidambar styraciflua L.) trees in Florida and North Carolina yielded an average of 46 seeds per fruit after cross-pollination but only 2 seeds per fruit after self-pollination. Post-pollination cytological analysis of pistillate infloresences from two of the North Carolina trees revealed that self-fertilized ovules aborted before they reached the cellular endosperm stage. This means that outbreeding due to wind-pollination is reinforced by self-sterility. The possible relation of the breeding system to population variation is discussed.
