Spatial analysis of morphology in Eriastum eremicum (Jepson) H.Mason (Polemoniaceae).
Historically, up to four different varieties or subspecies were recognized within E. eremicum, distinguished by characters such as the number of leaf lobes, the length of the corolla, and the symmetry of the corolla. This study used traditional multivariate analysis along with spatial and geostatistical analyses of morphometric data to scan for geographic trends in these morphological characters. Initial results suggest that more than one subspecies should be recognized.
