A review of the seed biology of Paeonia species (Paeoniaceae), with particular reference to dormancy and germination
TLDR
An overview of the available information on seed dormancy/germination in peonies is provided and some suggestions regarding propagation for the peony industry and breeders are made.
Dormancy-Breaking and Germination Requirements for Seeds of Sorbus alnifolia (Siebold & Zucc.) K.Koch (Rosaceae), a Mesic Forest Tree with High Ornamental Potential
TLDR
The results showed that intact seeds of S. alnifolia were dormant, requiring 150 days of cold stratification to achieve the maximum germination percentage at 5/15 °C, andCold stratification will be useful in propagating this species.
Effect of seed morph and light level on growth and reproduction of the amphicarpic plant Amphicarpaea edgeworthii (Fabaceae)
TLDR
The growth and reproductive responses of ASP and SSP of A. edgeworthii may be adaptive to the range of low to high light environments in which this species grows, and these heteromorphic diaspores give rise to plants that differ in growth and ecology.
Predicting the Potential Distribution of Paeonia veitchii (Paeoniaceae) in China by Incorporating Climate Change into a Maxent Model
TLDR
The results revealed a highly and moderately suitable habitat for P. veitchii that encompassed ca.
Shifts in potential geographical distribution of Pterocarya stenoptera under climate change scenarios in China
TLDR
The projected spatial and temporal patterns of P. stenoptera can provide reference for the development of forest management and protection strategies and indicate that both models have good predictive power.
Achene heteromorphism in Bidens pilosa (Asteraceae): differences in germination and possible adaptive significance
TLDR
Differences among dimorphic achenes of B. pilosa increased the species’ fitness to adapt to heterogeneous habitats creating an ecological adaptive strategy that may allow B. Pilosa to successfully thrive in stressful habitats.
Lack of divergence in seed ecology of two Amphicarpaea (Fabaceae) species disjunct between eastern Asia and eastern North America.
TLDR
Dormancy in neither aerial nor subterranean seeds of both species has diverged over geological time, and seed dispersal ability and degree of dormancy of neither species fits the high-risk/low-risk (H-H/L-L) strategy found in many diaspore-dimorphic species.
