Maximum forces at failure were measured in Asparagus falcatus and A. setaceus with traction forces parallel to the stem and with an angle of 45° (toward the apex). Numbers below indicate the number (n) of samples (100% in all tests) having failed. (***: p ≤0.001, Student’s t-test and Mann-Whitney U-test).
