Seed germination of six mature neotropical rain forest species in response to dehydration

, : Seed germination of six mature neotropical rain forest species in response to dehydration. Tree Physiology 20(10): 693-699

Seeds of Cupania glabra, Cymbopetalum baillonii, Poulsenia armata, Stemmadenia donnell-smithii, Rheedia edulis and Chamaedorea alternans were dehydrated to reduce their initial moisture content by 0 (control), 30, 54 or 72%. They were then rehydrated and germinated. C. baillonii, P. armata and S. donnell-smithii had greater tolerance to seed dehydration than C. glabra, C. alternans and R. edulis.
