Table 1 Summary statistics of the corresponding seed traits

From: Image analysis of Moroccan carob seeds (Ceratonia siliqua L.) revealed substantial intraspecific variations depending on climate and geographic origin

  1. One-way ANOVA tests result and coefficient of variation (CV%) per seed trait are given
  2. Values labeled with “***” are statistically significant at P < 0.001; N, number of seeds used in the analysis; S.D., standard deviation; Min, minimum value; Max, maximum value
