This review provides both an overview of the essential processes that are associated with germination and a description of the possible impediments thereto that may result in dormancy.
Lipid peroxidation associated with accelerated aging of soybean axes.
It is suggested that aging leads to peroxidative changes to lipids and that these could contribute to loss of viability in soybean seeds.
Physiological Aspects of Desiccation Tolerance
The results obtained allowed us to assess the importance of knowing the carrier and removal status of canine coronavirus, as a source of infection for other animals, not necessarily belonging to the same breeds.
Structure and Composition
Seeds are very diverse in their shape and size. In the mature state they contain an embryo, the next generation of plant, surrounded by a protective structure (the seed and/or fruit coat) and, in

Subjects include the modelling of germination and seedling emergence genetic modification preservation in gene banks, and sources of food, food additives and beverages, poisons, pharmacological and psychoactive substances, and fibres and other manufactured products.
Starch branching enzymes belonging to distinct enzyme families are differentially expressed during pea embryo development.
Qualitative measurement ofAmylopectin from developing and maturing embryos confirms that the nature of amylopECTin changes during pea embryo development and that this correlates with the differential expression of SBE isoforms.
