Estimates of the outcrossing rates varied considerably beteween populations and species, but averaged 80 to 90. Some evidence is presented on the relationships between stands whose taxonomic status is still unclear, particularly with respect to P. patula ssp tecunumannii. In particular, the Yucul and Mountain Pine Ridge stands of P. oocarpa seem to have affinities, but the allozyme evidence is equivocal on the inclusion of the Rafael stand in P. patula ssp. tecunumanii
