Appendix A. Path analysis tables for maternal effects and heritability of seed diameter.
Table A1. Path analysis table of the maternal effects on seed provisioning. Standardized path coefficients for the relationship between the number of neighbors in a 10 radius patch, ln plant mass and the average diameter of seeds produced. In the list of paths: O: average diameter of offspring (mm), N: number of neighbors in a patch, and LnPM: ln dry plant mass (mg). Bold letters denote a P value < 0.05.

Table A2. Path analysis table of the heritability of seed diameter. Standardized path coefficients for the effects of parental seed diameter (mm) and ln plant mass (mg) on the average diameter of seeds produced. In the list of paths: O: average diameter of offspring (mm), P: parental seed diameter and LnPM: ln dry plant mass (mgr.). Bold letters denote a P value < 0.05.
