  • Genus Sanicula encompasses about 40 species, mainly from temperate deciduous forests and exhibiting an Arcto-Tertiary relict distribution. It has previously been shown that stasis in physiological traits, such as seed dormancy, can occur in genera with an Arcto-Tertiary disjunct distribution. The aim of this study was to determine the requirements for dormancy break and seed germination in the Eurasian woodland herb Sanicula europaea L. Comparing our results with other Apiaceae in a… CONTINUE READING
