Seed germination strategies: An evolutionary trajectory independent of vegetative functional traits

Hoyle, Gemma; Steadman, Kathryn; Good, Roger; McIntosh, Emma; Galea, Lucy; Nicotra, Adrienne


1. Seed germination strategies vary dramatically among species but relatively little is known about how germination traits correlate with other elements of plant strategy systems. Understanding drivers of germination strategy is critical to our understanding of the evolutionary biology of plant reproduction. 2. We present a novel assessment of seed germination strategies focussing on Australian alpine species as a case study. We describe the distribution of germination strategies and ask...[Show more]
