Germination ecology of eleven species of Geraniaceae and Malvaceae, with special reference to the effects of drying seeds.
Germination and survival of water-impermeable seeds of 11 species of Geraniaceae and Malvaceae were monitored during dry storage and during burial in soil for up to 2.5 years. During dry storage,… Expand
Multiple environmental signals required for embryo growth and germination of seeds of Selinum carvifolia (L.) L. and Angelica sylvestris L. ( Apiaceae )
Germination and dormancy breaking requirements were studied in Selinum carvifolia (L.) L. and Angelica sylvestris L. ( Apiaceae ). Seeds of these two species have an underdeveloped embryo and are… Expand
Combinational dormancy in winter annual Fabaceae.
Among 14 species of herbaceous Fabaceae , all six winter annuals show a marked non-deep physiological dormancy of the embryo in addition to physical dormancy. This physiological dormancy is apparent… 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
Morphological and physiological dormancy in seeds of Aegopodium podagraria (Apiaceae) broken successively during cold stratification
A low-temperature requirement for dormancy break has been observed frequently in temperate-climate Apiaceae species, resulting in spring emergence of seedlings. A series of experiments was performed… 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
Very fast germination: additional records and relationship to embryo size and phylogeny
Nectar traits differ between pollination syndromes in Balsaminaceae
Abstract Background and Aims The attractiveness of nectar rewards depends both on the quantity of nectar produced and on its chemical composition. It is known that nectar quantity and chemical… Expand
Photophobia in Lilioid monocots: photoinhibition of seed germination explained by seed traits, habitat adaptation and phylogenetic inertia.
Background and Aims Photoinhibition of seed germination, known to occur notably in species growing in dry and hot habitats, is considered an adaptation to avoid germination at the soil surface after… Expand
