In Cypereae, the main variations at the flower level (Table 2) relate to the presence or absence of perianth parts, the presence or lack of a gynophore, stamen number, stigma branches number, form and orientation of the ovary (and then achene) and style base persistency.
For P1, the water content in the pods was higher in SWC 2, which may have resulted in higher water content of the peduncle, hindering its detachment because of the greater resistance of the plant gynophore, which is favorable for lower losses during digging.
Field samples of the plants at different stages of development (phenological stages) were collected for identification of mycoflora during the two harvest periods, as follows: stage I, aerial gynophore; stage II, gynophore penetrated into soil; stage III, pod filling (seeds); stage IV, mature fruits (pod); and stage V, dry fruits (harvest).
Fruits didymous, glabrous; valves wingless, 2.5-3 x 1.5-2 mm; gynophore 0.2-0.5 mm long; replum expanded apically; septum perforate; style 0.4-0.6 mm long; stigma capitate, somewhat 2-lobed.
