Figure 5

Morphometric scatter plot of the first three axes from a Detrended Correspondence Analysis (DCA) for 155 specimens (classification of 50 seagrass ethnotaxa) constrained by 22 quantitative variables (ethno-taxonomic characters). Bi-plot arrows represent the strength of the correlations among explanatory variables and the first three DCA axes. Symbols for species are defined in the legend from Figure 3. Numbers within and beside symbols represents specific ethnotaxa of which the respective names can be found in Table 3.
