To analyse the potential reaction to firegenerated heat pulses, seeds of 12 species of plants and rhizomes of three species were exposed to elevated temperatures for 10 min. The tested material split into three groups with respect to heat tolerance: (1) the rhizomes, for which the lethal temperatures were in the range 55–59° C; (2) the seeds of most of the species tested, for which the lethal temperatures were in the range 65–75° C; (3) The seeds of two species of Leguminosae and three species… CONTINUE READING
