Seed dormancy and germination of the European Chaerophyllum temulum (Apiaceae), a member of a trans-Atlantic genus.
BACKGROUND AND AIMS The European Chaerophyllum temulum and two North American Chaerophyllum species have a trans-Atlantic disjunct distribution. This work aimed to resolve requirements for dormancy… Expand
Evolutionary dynamics and biogeography of Musaceae reveal a correlation between the diversification of the banana family and the geological and climatic history of Southeast Asia
Summary Tropical Southeast Asia, which harbors most of the Musaceae biodiversity, is one of the most species‐rich regions in the world. Its high degree of endemism is shaped by the region's tectonic… Expand
Relative embryo length as an adaptation to habitat and life cycle in Apiaceae.
• The factors driving the evolution of the relative embryo length in Apiaceae were examined. We tested the hypothesis that seeds with large relative embryo length, because of more rapid germination,… Expand
Photoinhibition of seed germination: occurrence, ecology and phylogeny
Light conditions provide important information about the best time and place for seedling establishment. Photoinhibition of seed germination (PISG), defined as the partial or complete suppression of… Expand
The role of temperature in post-dispersal embryo growth and dormancy break in seeds of Aconitum lycoctonum L.
This research was performed to resolve temperature requirement for embryo growth, dormancy break and seed germination of Aconitum lycoctonum, an Eurasian perennial herb growing in deciduous forests.… Expand
Seasonal dormancy cycles in the biennial Torilis japonica ( Apiaceae ), a species with morphophysiological dormancy
Torilis japonica (Apiaceae) has a widespread distribution, extending from western Europe to eastern Asia. In Europe, it usually behaves as a springgerminating biennial species. Ripe seeds of T.… Expand
Temperature requirements for seed germination and seedling development determine timing of seedling emergence of three monocotyledonous temperate forest spring geophytes.
BACKGROUND AND AIMS The optimal period for seedling emergence depends on factors such as habitat preference, life cycle and geographical distribution. This research was performed to clarify the role… Expand
Environmental signals for seed germination reflect habitat adaptations in four temperate Caryophyllaceae
Summary 1Requirements for dormancy break and seed germination are specific for all species and depend chiefly on phylogeny, geographical distribution, habitat preference and life cycle. Studying… Expand
Deep complex morphophysiological dormancy in Sanicula europaea (Apiaceae) fits a recurring pattern of dormancy types in genera with an Arcto-Tertiary distribution
Genus Sanicula encompasses about 40 species, mainly from temperate deciduous forests and exhibiting an Arcto-Tertiary relict distribution. It has previously been shown that stasis in physiological… Expand
A season- and gap-detection mechanism regulates seed germination of two temperate forest pioneers.
The survival of seedlings in temperate climate habitats depends on both temporal and spatial factors. The interaction between an internal seed dormancy mechanism and the ruling environmental… Expand
