  • The two values in each entry above the diagonal are the phenotypic correlation coefficient and its associated probability (in italics). Entries below the diagonal are the derived genetic correlation coefficients. Estimates of genetic correlation are not available for flowers per inflorescence due to the lack of correspondence between this trait and the others in the single F1 genotype used. Genetic correlations >1 are due to the method of estimation of environmental variance. FPI, flowers per inflorescence. Other measures are lengths in millimeters.
