Lupinus albicaulis

Abbreviation: LUAL

Seed sample from: 2011

Average Measurement: 5.7 x 4.4 x 2.1

Measurement Range: L: 5 - 6.5, W: 4 - 5, D: 1.5 - 2.5

Features

Color: Seeds are mostly off-white, tan, or gray with darker brown or tan mottling. Speckles tend to be heavier at seed edges leading to a darkened appearance.

Surface: Seeds smooth and glossy with some concave pitting.

Latitudinal Cross Section: elliptical LUAL-lat.png

Longitudinal Cross Section: elliptical LUAL-long.png


Basic Explanations and Assumptions:

The dimensions for the seeds are length x width x depth. The location of the hilum is used as the base of the seed, and the length is measured from hilum to the opposite apex. Where a style is present, the length is measured from the hilum to the bottom of the style. Width is measured at a right angle to the length at the widest part. Depth is measured at a right angle to the intersection of height and width lines.

Measurements included are the mean average for each measurement of ten separate seeds.

All measurements in millimeters unless otherwise noted.
