zea morphology

found a tandem ear in the teosinte ( second photo ) tandem ears in the corn ( fifth photo )...but the way they emerge from the stalk is very similar...the stalk splits to produce the ear...true one has only one row of seeds...the other ten, twelve, or fourteen depending on variety...and one can reproduce itself and one cannot without human help...still an ancestor/domesticate morphology.
