This study used quantitative descriptors to assess morphological variation of traditionally classified tamarind fruits and its relation to ecological conditions. Tamarind trees were sampled spanning locally recognized fruit morphotypes within three ecological zones. Twelve morphological descriptors were measured on 3000 fruits and seeds. Univariate and canonical discrimiant analyses performed on morphological descriptors revealed significant differences and confirmed morphotypes distinction as… CONTINUE READING
