Effect of seed source and temperature on seed germination of Celtis australis L.: a promising agroforestry tree-crop of Central Himalaya, India



Effect of seed source and temperature on seed germination of Celtis australis L.: a promising agroforestry tree-crop of Central Himalaya, India



Forests, Trees and Livelihoods 14(1): 53-60



Seeds of Celtis australis were collected from 13 sites (from 10 candidate plus trees at each site) in India, covering an altitudinal range from 550-1980 m asl. Germination was tested at 7 temperature regimes. The optimum regime (25 degrees C) was the same for all provenances, but the germination %, mean germination time and germination index of provenances varied significantly.
