Distribution Fitting 12. Sampling Distribution of Compounds Abundance from Plant Species Measured by Instrumentation. Application to Plants Metabolism Classification
AbstractA series of ten plant species belonging to Magnoliopsida - Dicotyledons class were analyzed in terms of chemical compounds distribution of abundance, starting from the assumption that these distributions should give a picture of similarities and differences between plants metabolism. From a pool of theoretical distributions, log-normal distribution was selected giving the best accuracy with the modeled phenomena and agreement with the observed data. From obtained lognormal distributions statistics a classification were constructed and were compared with the classification based on phylogeny.
