ResumenThe increasingly common phenomenon of habitat fragmentation raises the probability of pollination failure in a number of species, as both pollen quantity and quality often decrease as populations become isolated. We experimentally investigated whether pollen was limiting reproductive success of the endangered shrub Buxus balearica in five populations, two continental and three insular, during 2002 and 2003. Pollen limitation varied among populations and years, but such variation was not related to density or degree of isolation. All populations showed inbreeding depression at different phases of the reproductive cycle, although its effects differed greatly among sites. Between-population outcrossing did not have a consistent effect on several components of fitness. The highest levels of inbreeding depression - detected at the level of fruit and seed set- occurred at the smallest and least fecund populations from each region. This indicates that further fragmentation of the populations of this already endangered species could certainly threaten their survival. © 2006 Springer-Verlag.
