Glossary Term: Quotient

(Abbreviated to “Q”): Length divided by width. Typically this is done when measuring spores, but not when measuring cystidia. Usually applied to basidiospores to indicate how broad or narrow are. This statistic is helpful in determining a specific shape (e.g. globose, subglobose, broadly ellipsoid, etc).
