Disentangling leaf morphology in Daustinia montana (Convolvulaceae)

Juliana Alencar, André Luiz Borba Do Nascimento, Paulo Duarte-Neto & Maria Teresa Buril
Daustinia montana (Convolvulaceae) is the only species of the genus, and is notable for its wide leaf variability. To understand whether this plasticity is correlated with the distribution of the species, linear morphometric and leaf contour analyses were performed. Specimens from herbaria were photographed, and pre-established linear measurements were made. A multivariate analysis was then performed to test the strength of associations among morphological characteristics, climatic variables, and distribution of the species. Elliptic Fourier analysis...
