Abstract: Much evidence available in the literature supports the contention of
H. G. Baker that self-compatibility is the rule in plants which have undergone long
distance dispersal. However, in the Hawaiian flora there may be a high incidence of
dioecism which represents an extreme form of outbreeding. Data are compiled which
support the viewpoint of a high er than continental incidence of dioecism in the
Hawaiian flora. A simple explanation is advanced for resolving the apparent contradiction
between the higher percentage of dioecism and the isolation in the
Hawaiian flora.
