( Ayala and Lang, 2015 ; Basile et al., 2002 ). Farrar (1996) and Minchin et al. (1997) suggested that the distribution of assimilates is controlled by the entire source–sink pathway in the plant system and is not a property of sinks alone. By

known to be regulated by the availability of carbohydrates—in particular, sucrose, the transported form of sugar, required for starch synthesis ( Abelenda et al., 2019 ). In addition, the distribution and transportation of sugar among leaves, stems, and

Retail florists' performance ratings of services provided by wholesale growers, wholesale florists, and grower-shippers/brokers were factor-analyzed to yield a hierarchical classification of customer service in floral distribution. Nine customer service factors were identified and three major independent classes of customer service were defined, including 1) physical distribution, 2) marketing, and 3) product quality services. Florists rated the performance of suppliers' physical distribution services higher than marketing and product quality services. Florists' perception of physical distribution and product quality services did not vary across type of supplier, but for marketing services, florists rated wholesale growers higher in performance than wholesale florists. The hierarchical classification of customer service and service performance profiles provide the floral industry with relevant market information for the successful development and effective implementation of customer service programs.

experiments, confirming and dividing potential distributions rather than studying the technology of cultivation and management ( Jiang et al., 2006 ; Ning et al., 2010 ). Thus, olives in suitable distributions are planted at a low density; consequently, they

Determination of fruit size and weight is important in horticulture to estimate yield and the proportion of fruit in each grade ( Zhang and Robson, 2002 ). Typically, the distribution of apple fruit weight fits a normal distribution ( Webb et al

Global climate change affects many ecosystems and biota. It not only affects the growth and distribution of vegetation worldwide but also leads to the loss of species diversity and germplasm resources. Climate and habitat change affect vegetation
