My main point remains the same.

You can make statement about your dataset, but until you're ready to
meta-discuss the data set itself, you cannot make statements about the general
population of Plants.

That's a fairly widely followed scientific method. (Which allows me
wiggle-room in case in the off-chance you're able to find a *scientist* who doesn't
discuss their dataset in relation to how it was obtained, who it represents,
and more importantly who it potentially does not.)
