    • Abstract

       

      Mating behaviour ofCyclosorus parasiticus studied from isolate, pair and composite populations showed potentially intergametophytic mating behaviour and capacity for intragametophytic selfing which helps in wide distribution of the species in different environmental niches. The study also indicates lesser genetic diversity inC. parasiticus.
