Common Garden Measuring 2009

| 2 Comments

Yesterday we finished measuring in the Common Garden! Here are some details about the protocol used for 2009:

Gardens: Inbreeding & INB2 we used the same form as in 2008. Basal and Flowering Rosettes were counted separately. Crisp leaves were included in the leaf counts.

Gardens: 2001, Monica's, SPP, Big Batch, and 96-99 we used an abbreviated form. We did not record data on insect damage. Insects on all rosettes (basal and flowering) were recorded on the main form. Insects on the heads were recorded on the subform. Cauline leaves were not counted. The longest cauline leaf (longest leaf on the tallest flowering rosette) was recorded on the main form. For basal leaves, crisp leaves were included in leaf counts and also noted, as were leaves that were "gone." Pips or duds with no florets were only recorded if there was a peduncle long enough for a twist-tie collar.

Also, we noted wrinkled leaves only when they strongly affected the whole plant.

Yippee!! Got 'er done! What a lot of work - well done all!!
