The following groups of species were tested: entire margins - Cornus florida, Fagus grandifolia, Cercis canadensis, and Nyssa sylvatica; prominently toothed - Ulmus americana and Viburnum rafinesquianum; inconspicuously toothed - Prunus serotina and Viburnum prunifolium; compound and prominently toothed - Aesculus sylvatica, Carya alba, and Rubus allegheniensis; lobed with smooth margins - Quercus alba, Quercus stellata, and Liriodendron tulipifera; lobed with pointed or toothed margins - Quercus rubra, Viburnum acerifolium, Liquidambar styracifiua, and Acer rubrum.
Small-seeded species (seeds [less than] 1 cm) were represented by Rubus allegheniensis, Phytolacca americana and Viburnum acerifolium L.
The seeds (pyrenes) of Viburnum acerifolium are substantially larger than those of the other two small-seeded species, and because they are not commonly clumped following dispersal, we presented them singly.
