  • Once such an element spawns a progeny element, the progenitor element (as well as the progeny element) has a high likelihood of extinction due to genetic drift; the donor and the progeny elements will be separated from each other by outcrossing (see [ 48 ] for further discussion).

  • If a bee is attracted to such a flower, it might sometimes remove nectar and pollen without providing an outcrossing service (i.e.

  • Whether the imprint imposed by a paramutagenic locus is relayed effectively from the first target locus to a secondary target locus is a variable characteristic of paramutation systems, and this has implications for the speed of epiallele conversion within outcrossing populations.
