  • Analysis of variance was used to test the association between flowering time and indels (Ind1 and Ind2) in the Bni COL1 gene. The tests were performed separately for each population and in a nested model with country of origin and genotype within country as factors. NP, not polymorphic among plants assessed for flowering time.

  • a Calculated from nested ANOVA (genotype within country).
