Updated Methods for Seed Shape Analysis

Figure 7

A model based on the cardioid was applied to seeds of Rhus tripartita (Ucria) Grande (Anacardiaceae; Saadaoui et al., submitted). Four morphological types were described in this work. Type A: seeds in which similarity with the cardioid is above 92 in the left region and above 80 in the right. Type B: seeds whose values of similarity with the cardioid curve are below 92 in the left region and above 80 in the right of the seed. Type C: seeds whose values of similarity with the cardioid curve are below 80 in the right part of the seed and above 92 in the left. Type BC: seeds in which similarity with the cardioid curve is below 92 per cent in the right and below 80 per cent in the right part of the seed. Plants grown in different climates had distinct proportions of seed types.
