Seeds: Ecology, Biogeography, and, Evolution of Dormancy and Germination
Introduction. Ecologically Meaningful Germination Studies. Types of Seed Dormancy. Germination Ecology of Seeds with Nondeep Physiological Dormancy. Germination Ecology of Seeds with… Expand
A classification system for seed dormancy
The proposal is made that seed scientists need an internationally acceptable hierarchical system of classification for seed dormancy. Further, we suggest that a modified version of the scheme of the… Expand
Taxonomy, anatomy and evolution of physical dormancy in seeds
Physical dormancy (PY) is caused by a water-impermeable seed or fruit coat. It is known, or highly suspected, to occur in nine orders and 15 families of angiosperms (sensuAngiosperm Phylogeny Group… Expand
GERMINATION ECOPHYSIOLOGY OF HERBACEOUS PLANT SPECIES IN A TEMPERATE REGION
Germination phenology data have been collected from 75 winter annuals, 49 summer annuals, 28 monocarpic perennials, and 122 polycarpic perennials, and experimental investigations of dormancy breaking… Expand
Accelerated Aging Techniques for Predicting the Relative Storability of Seed Lots
Ecological aspects of seed desiccation sensitivity
Summary 1 The ability of seeds to survive desiccation is an important functional trait and is an integral part of plant regeneration ecology. Despite this, the topic has received relatively little… Expand
The Annual Dormancy Cycle in Buried Weed Seeds: A Continuum
The classic studies of Brenchley and Warington (1930) and numerous other investigations have demonstrated that large reserves (pools) of weed seeds accumulate in arable soils. Work reviewed by Kropad… Expand
The evolution of seed dormancy: environmental cues, evolutionary hubs, and diversification of the seed plants.
Seed dormancy, by controlling the timing of germination, can strongly affect plant survival. The kind of seed dormancy, therefore, can influence both population and species-level processes such as… Expand
Population Biology of Grasses: Ecology of seed dormancy and germination in grasses
