Homeohydrous (Recalcitrant) Seeds: Dehydration, the State of Water and Viability Characteristics in Landolphia kirkii.

Abstract

Differential scanning calorimetry was used to study the relationships among drying rate, desiccation sensitivity, and the properties of water in homeohydrous (recalcitrant) seeds of Landolphia kirkii. Slow drying of intact seeds to axis moisture contents of approximately 0.9 to 0.7 gram/gram caused lethal damage, whereas very rapid (flash) drying of excised… (More)
