  • a Seeds were sown on medium with 0.6 μM ABA, chilled for 4 days at 4°C in darkness, and incubated for 2 days at 21°C with a 16-hr-light photoperiod. The abi1-1R1 revertant was analyzed in an experiment separate from the other three.

  • b Probabilities derived from chi-square tests of independence.
