Functional significance of photoblastic germination in neotropical pioneer trees: a seed's eye view

Abstract

1. We investigated the relationship between seed mass and the suitability of microsites for germination for five small-seeded (< 2-4 mg fresh mass) photoblastic neotropical pioneer trees. We determined the germination response of these species to the ratio of red to far-red irradiance (r:fr) and compared it to r:fr measured under varying conditions of… (More)
