The Sexual History of a Species

(p.87) 4 Selfing
Care of the Species

John Hartigan Jr.

University of Minnesota Press

Chapter Four goes inside the lab, examining the genetic techniques by which the razas de maíz are broken down into mapping populations—more manageable samples of genetic structure and material. The initial focus is on the technique of selfing plants and the recent sexual history of maize, using these as the basis for transposing “care of the self” to “care of the species.”
