ONE of the key problems in germination physiology is the mechanism of embryo ‘dormancy’ or rest. One aspect of this problem is the physiological dwarfing which has been reported to occur in the seedlings of woody plants, especially of such commercial fruits as peaches. These seeds normally require an extended period of low-temperature after-ripening to permit germination. However, if the seed-coat is removed from non-after-ripened seeds germination occurs, but the shoots of such plants are… Expand
Temperature and seed dormancy
The seeds of some plant species are dormant and will not germinate when they are placed in an environment generally conducive to germination, that is to say, in conditions of appropriate warmth,Expand
Chilling-Dependent Release of Seed and Bud Dormancy in Peach Associates to Common Changes in Gene Expression
TLDR
Short periods of chilling seem to improve germination in an abscisic acid-dependent manner, whereas the positive effect of longer cold treatments on physiological dwarfing coincides with the accumulation of phenylpropanoids in the seed. Expand
Seed dormancy: an update on terminology, physiological genetics, and quantitative trait loci regulating germinability
TLDR
The objective in writing this paper is to provide weed scientists, advanced students, and others with limited background information, some recent findings concerning the physiological genetics of dormancy, and steps toward identifying genes that directly regulate seed dormancy and germination.

Influence of Shade and Bed Types on Attaining Optimum Temperature for The Germination of Peach (Prunus Persica L. Batsch) Seeds at Holetta, Central Ethiopia
TLDR
Temperature is the most important factor affecting the germination percentage of the peach seeds, and peach seeds stratified in the refrigerator had good germination Percentage whereas survival of the seedling was better at out of tree shade in sunken bed and out of Tree shade on the flatbed.

Morphological Changes in Peach Seedlings Following After-Ripening Treatments of the Seeds
TLDR
The dwarfed and anomalous growth of seedlings only rarely occurred in parts other than the epicotyledonary axis and its appendages, and new shoots induced from axillary buds were free from dwarfedand anomalous characters. Expand
