Curve of the fruit length of Oenothera lamarckiana
From the blog
showing curves emphasizing the size (length) distribution of the
Evening-Primrose (Oenothera lamarckiana).
Drawing by botanist and geneticist
Hugo de Vries
. The top view is a cumulative distribution function flipped by ninety degrees (called by
percent point function
). The bottom view shows a larger sketched bell-shaped curve that is just a multiple of the smaller.
