Influence of seed age and inbreeding on germination and seedling growth in Hibiscus moscheutos (Malvaceae)

Influence of seed age and inbreeding on germination and seedling growth in Hibiscus moscheutos (Malvaceae)

Journal of the Torrey Botanical Society 128(1): 16-24

Little is known how age of seeds stored under laboratory conditions influences germination and seedling growth in non-agricultural species, especially species used in ecological restoration projects. Nor do we know how inbreeding affects seed aging. Hibiscus moscheutos, a wild species native to wetlands of the eastern United States, was used to compare one- vs. three-year-old and two- vs. five-year-old laboratory stored seeds.
