Table 2 Pooled within-groups correlations between discriminating variables and standardized canonical discriminant functions of morphological characters

From: Epigenetic rather than genetic factors may explain phenotypic divergence between coastal populations of diploid and tetraploid Limonium spp. (Plumbaginaceae) in Portugal
