Seeds of the temperate tetraploid cytotype of Crocus neapolitanus, the sub-Mediterranean C. etruscus and the Mediterranean C. ilvensis were placed either on agar in the laboratory under different periods of simulated seasonal conditions or in nylon mesh bags buried outdoors to examine embryo growth, radicle… CONTINUE READING
