The use of quantitative characters in determination of frequently misdiagnosed species within Lepidium L. sect. Dileptium (Brassicaceae)

Adam Rostański, Paweł Wąsowicz


A morphometric study of the three species of Lepidium L. sect. Dileptium DC. is presented. Multivariate methods (cluster analysis and canonical discriminant analysis) were employed to investigate phenetic relations between examined individuals. As a result a set of quantitative characters useful in species determination was proposed and discussed.
