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 GroupExpand

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 KropadExpand

A revision of Martin's seed classification system, with particular reference to his dwarf-seed type
Martin's ( 1946 ) seed classification system has 10 types based on embryo and endosperm characteristics and two additional types based on seed size: dwarf (0.3–2.0 mm) and micro ( ≤ 0.2 mm). HeExpand
