Abstract

Infructescence length was positively correlated with fruit number but independent of all other measured parameters, indicating that infructescences bearing many fruits did not produce fewer or smaller seeds than those with few fruits. There were no strong position effects on, or inverse relationships between, seed mass and number that indicate that the availability of resources determines seed mass or number per fruit. -from Authors
