  1. CV% indicates the coefficient of variation of the 2C DNA peak in the flow histogram. Percentage increase indicates the percentage difference between fresh 2C DNA content and silica-dried 2C DNA content.
  2. *Range of 2C-values obtained from the analysis of fresh leaf material of the same species but different accessions.
