A mathematical model of mucilage expansion in myxospermous seeds of Capsella bursa-pastoris (shepherd's purse).

Abstract

BACKGROUND AND AIMS Myxospermy is a term which describes the ability of a seed to produce mucilage upon hydration. The mucilage is mainly comprised of plant cell-wall polysaccharides which are deposited during development of those cells that comprise the seed coat (testa). Myxospermy is more prevalent among those plant species adapted to surviving on arid… (More)
