The first part of this article outlines the methods for determining the mating system in operation (genetic markers, DNA analysis). The rest of the article presents results from studies by different authors in natural forests (the Lomas Barbudal biological reserve in Costa Rica) and fragmented forest (in Honduras), and in live fences (in Costa Rica) and a seed orchard (in Honduras).
