Alison G. Nazareno, Ana L. Alzate-Marin and Rodrigo Augusto S. Pereira Dioecy, more than monoecy, affects plant spatial genetic structure: the case study of Ficus Ecology and Evolution 3
Using the Sp statistic, which allows for quantitative comparisons among different studies, we compared the extent of SGS between monoecious and dioecious Ficus species. To broaden our conclusions we used published data on an additional 27 monoecious and dioecious plant species. Our results show that dioecy more than monoecy significantly affect SGS in plant populations. On average, the estimate of Sp was six times higher for dioecious Ficus species than monoecious Ficus species and it was two times higher in dioecious than monoecious plant species.
