Note: 1physiological quality describes viability () and germinability () in the sample: high physiological quality is related to a diaspore sample with viability () and germinability () higher than 90%, intermediate physiological quality is a diaspore sample with and , and low physiological quality is a diaspore sample with and ; for each species, values followed by the same letter (column) do not differ by the Student -test () for proportions. diaspores.
