Although likely recent introductions, they could become beneficial, promoting allogamy for this and other taxa.
It is important to realize that reproductive barriers can act on every level between complete and weak isolation and that the entire range between autogamy and allogamy can be found.
A comparable shift from allogamy to autogamy was achieved in Vitis (grape): Wild species and some primitive cultivars (dioecious) are cross-pollinators, whereas more modern cultivars (hermaphrodite) are self-pollinating (Olmo, 1995).
