Quantifying the oxygen sensitivity of seed germination using a population-based threshold model

  title={Quantifying the oxygen sensitivity of seed germination using a population-based threshold model},
  author={Kent J Bradford and Daniel C{\^o}me and Françoise Corbineau},
Seeds vary widely in the sensitivity of germination to oxygen (O2) partial pressure, depending upon the species, temperature, dormancy state and physiological status of the seeds. Most analyses of the O2 sensitivity of germination have focused on final germination percentages and estimated the O2 percentage in air that is required to reduce germination to a given percentage (usually 50%). In contrast, we have applied a populationbased threshold model utilizing time courses of germination to… CONTINUE READING
