summary We examined the importance of seed size in the early establishment of seedlings of four cotyledonous species restricted to nutrient-impoverished soils in south-western Australia. Experimentally removing cotyledons from seedlings increased mortality and reduced root-penetration, growth rate and final weight of plants after 12 wk, in proportion to seed size. The impact of removal of the cotyledons was least in the smallest-seeded, Eucalyptus loxophleba Benth., grown in the more fertile… CONTINUE READING
