A NOTE ON THE ESTIMATION OF NATURAL CROSSING BY THE MAXIMUM LIKELIHOOD METHOD

Published on

IN plants, there exists an array of reproductive systems ranging from obligate crossfertilization to almost complete selfing. The population structure of a species in
respect of such factors as the nature and amount of variability, the maintenance of
genetic heterogeneity, and the evolutionary potential in terms of long-term flexibility
or immediate fitness and, therefore, the development of appropriate breeding procedures for crop-improvement, is greatly influenced by the breeding system. Thus,
both evolutionists and plant breeders are interested in the quantitative estimation of
the rates of natural crossing in their material.
