  • Savannas are ecosystems characterized by the presence of scattered trees distributed over an herbaceous soil coverage of variable density. The Neotropical Brazilian savanna, locally called Cerrado, has been degraded during the past four decades. The use of native grass species to restore degraded areas is strongly advised. However, seed germination and longevity patterns of native species are poorly understood. This study aimed to investigate the viability, dormancy and germination of fresh and… CONTINUE READING
