The Induction of Seed Germination in Arabidopsis thaliana Is Regulated Principally by Phytochrome B and Secondarily by Phytochrome A
We examined whether spectrally active phytochrome A (PhyA) and phytochrome B (PhyB) play specific roles in the induction of seed germination in Arabidopsis thaliana (L.) Heynh., using PhyA- andExpand

Comparative Habitat Requirements for Spore Germination and Prothallial Growth of Three Ferns in Southeastern Michigan
Two studies suggest that the gametophytic and sporophytic phases of a plant can have different habitat requirements and that one phase of the life cycle can be one of alternation-of-generations. Expand
A Study of the Germination Process of Seeds of Heteranthera Limosa.
The seed of the aquatic plant, Heteranthera limosa Willd., are seen to have two requirements for germination: anaerobic conditions and light. Dormancy involves the seed coat which acts as aExpand
How Phytochrome Acts — Perspectives on the Continuing Quest
Prevention of etiolation, control of seed germination, and influence on flowering are three major aspects of the effect of light on plant growth and development, i.e., on photomorphogenesis. Each ofExpand
The role of phytochrome A and gibberellins in growth under long and short day conditions : studies in hybrid aspen
Light is shed on the early stages of growth cessation in deciduous trees, especially with respect to the role of phyA and GAs, and on the importance of GAs in growth as such, with important implications for wood production. Expand
