Olea europaea L. is one of the oldest agricolture tree crops. In spite of its great cultural and economic importance , especially in the countries of the mediterranean basin, a few studies have been carried out on the reproductive barriers in this species. Italy is the second olive oil producing country in the world, after Spain. olive oil production is typical of both Southern regions (Apulia, Calabria and Sicily) and Central-Northern regions 8Abruzzo, Tuscany, liguria, Umbria and veneto). The aim of this thesis was that of studyng the self-incompatibility is one of the most important systems adopted by many flowering plants to prevent inbreeding, maintaining so diversity within the species. A deep comprehension of this reproductive barrier is crucial because it may help to implement breeding strategies useful to obtain a higher yield of olive, essential for a competitive olive oil and table olive business.
