Ecological correlates of seed dormancy differ among dormancy types: A case study in the legumes
(Wiley on behalf of the New Phytologist Trust, 2018-01)
Comment on Rubio de Casas et al. (2017) ‘Global biogeography of seed dormancy is determined by seasonality and seed size: a case study in legumes’. Seed dormancy, and seed dormancy classes. Seed germination and seedling ...
Heavy metal stress can prime for herbivore-induced plant volatile emission
(Blackwell Publishing Inc., 2012-07)
Heavy metals are important pollutants that can severely impact ecological foodwebs. In addition to direct toxic effects, these contaminants have been suggested to disrupt chemical communication channels between plants and ...
Key features of the seed germination response to high temperatures
(John Wiley & Sons, Inc. on behalf of the New Phytologist Trust, 2012-10)
The responses of seed germination rates (GRs) and final germination percentages to soil temperature follow trends similar to those for many plant processes. There is an optimum temperature for seed germination (Tₒ), which ...
Comparison of three different statistical approaches (non-linear least-squares regression, survival analysis and Bayesian inference) in their usefulness for estimating hydrothermal time models of seed germination
(Cambridge University Press (CUP), 2020-05-01)
Hydrothermal time (HTT) models describe the time course of seed germination for a population of seeds under specific temperature and water potential conditions. The parameters of the HTT model are usually estimated using ...
