Rates of outcrossing were measured for two species of Banksia at Barren Grounds Nature Reserve, near Robertson, N.S.W. For B. spinulosa in a woodland area, both single-locus and multi-locus estimates of outcrossing approached the levels predicted for panmixia. A single-locus estimate for B. paludosa cohabiting the same site and a nearby heathland site gave similarly high estimates of outcrossing.
