  • F4-a  The synthetic allopolyploids are described in (Comai et al. 2000).

  • F4-b  Two-tailed probability of the null hypothesis (no difference) from Fisher exact test of independence in which all lines' responses are compared with that of the paternal C. arenosa.

  • F4-c  These plants were considerably less affected than the synthetic allopolyploids (see “Materials and Methods”).
