Dormancy patterns, germination ecology, and seed-bank types of twenty temperate fen grassland species



Dormancy patterns, germination ecology, and seed-bank types of twenty temperate fen grassland species



Wetlands 24(1): 152-166



The germination ecology, including primary and secondary dormancy, mortality of seeds, and seed-bank type, of 20 fen grassland species from Northern Germany was investigated using a combination of burial and germination experiments. To analyze primary dormancy and effects of after-ripening (dry storage for 28 days) on freshly matured seeds, germination was measured at two fluctuating temperature regimes (15/25 degrees C and 5/15 degrees C) in the light and in darkness.
