Examining seed coat characteristics with energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy

Examining seed coat characteristics with energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy

ACIAR Proceedings Series ( 28): 41-43

Energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy of stratified and unstratified seeds of Pinus clausa, P. echinata, P. elliottii, P. palustris, P. strobus, P. taeda and P. virginiana revealed the presence of Mg, Al, Si, P, S, K, Ca and Fe. There were significant differences in element composition between seed coats of unstratified and stratified seeds of P. echinata, P. elliottii, P. strobus and P. virginiana.
