From: Timing of shoot development transitions affects degree of perenniality in Arabidopsis lyrata (Brassicaceae)

Trait Mayodan Spiterstulen P value
mean (± s.d.) mean (± s.d.)
(n = 49) (n = 19)
Days to first boltinga 169.1 (±19.4) 273.2 (±1.0) <0.0001b
Days to first floweringa 209.3 (±22.1) 278.3 (±1.0) <0.0123b
Days to lateral vegetative developmenta 186.4 (±21.2) 252.7 (±7.7) <0.0001b
Branchiness rating 1.57 (±0.67) 3.38 (±0.96) <0.0001
Pre-reproductive rosette diameter (mm) 50.7 (±19.5) 135.9 (±33.9) <0.0001c
  1. aAll days are relative to the date of sowing, with plants that did not show the trait excluded
  2. bWald test using Cox proportional hazard model, with plants that did not show the trait before dying or reaching the end of the experiment treated as censored data
  3. cFrom linear model using log transformation
