Seeds: Ecology, Biogeography, and, Evolution of Dormancy and Germination
TLDR
A Geographical Perspective on Germination Ecology: Tropical and Subtropical Zones and Biogeographical and Evolutionary Aspects of Seed Dormancy.
A classification system for seed dormancy
TLDR
It is suggested that a modified version of the scheme of the Russian seed physiologist Marianna G. Nikolaeva be adopted and includes three hierarchical layers – class, level and type; thus, a class may contain levels and types, and a level may contain only types.
Taxonomy, anatomy and evolution of physical dormancy in seeds
TLDR
Phylogenetic data and fossil evidence seem to support the PY→(PY+PD) evolutionary sequence in Anacardiaceae, which also may have occured in Leguminosae.
Ecological aspects of seed desiccation sensitivity
TLDR
The relationships between seed desiccation tolerance and two important aspects of plant regeneration ecology: habitat and dormancy are examined by comparative analysis of a data set of 886 tree and shrub species from 93 families.
GERMINATION ECOPHYSIOLOGY OF HERBACEOUS PLANT SPECIES IN A TEMPERATE REGION
TLDR
The purpose of these studies was to determine if there are correlations between the dormancy breaking and germination requirements of seeds and the germination phenology, life cycle type, habitat requirements, range of geographical distribution, and phylogenetic relationships of the species.
The Annual Dormancy Cycle in Buried Weed Seeds: A Continuum
TLDR
Researchers have known for decades that many buried seeds need to be brought to the soil surface before they will germinate, and to understand how germination of buried seeds is controlled, plant biologists have studied the re.
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
Germination of dimorphic seeds of the desert annual halophyte Suaeda aralocaspica (Chenopodiaceae), a C4 plant without Kranz anatomy.
TLDR
Brown seeds were non-dormant, whereas black seeds had non-deep Type 2 physiological dormancy (PD), andGermination percentage and rate of germination of brown seeds and of variously pretreated black seeds were significantly higher than those of non-pretreatedblack seeds.
