The reproductive biology of a glade population of Parthenium integrifolium.

Parthenium integrifolium is a native plant with a broad range including Missouri glades. We compared the morphology of MO glade populations to the norms across the species range. We studied the pollination system and tested for self-compatibility. Glade populations have large floral diameters in the compound flowers. It is pollinated by beetles and is self-compatible.
