8 mm long), disarticulate more readily (facilitated by an attenuated base), are covered by a tightly adhering camouflagic mottled layer (homologous with the perianth), have relatively thick pericarp walls, are relatively long-lived, and do not all germinate more or less simultaneously (Vavilov, 1926; Small, 1975a).
Additionally, the camouflagic mottled layer covering the achenes of wild plants keeps the fallen ones hidden from mammalian and insect herbivores.
The achenes tend to remain on the plant for easy harvest, the development of a thick pericarp to protect the seed has been lessened, the camouflagic perianth attached to the pericarp tends to slough off since it is no longer needed, larger seeds have been selected to give the seedlings a better start, and dormancy has been eliminated so that the seeds germinate immediately and produce a dependably uniform crop.
