Principle components analysis indicating the grouping of four goosegrass ecotypes; dwarf, intermediate one (int_I), intermediate two (int_II) and wild. Component 1 is a combination of plant height, internode length, raceme length, above ground biomass and total surface area of above ground biomass; component 2 consists of seedhead number. The dwarf ecotype is the lowest on component 1, int_I and int_II are in the middle; and wild is the highest. The int_II ecotype is the highest on component 2; dwarf, int_I and wild are in the middle. Goosegrass plants were grown in greenhouse conditions at Clemson University, Clemson SC. At the completion of the life cycle (~10 weeks) phenotypic data was collected.
