Effect of boiling water, seed coat structure and provenance on the germination of Acacia melanoxylon seeds
Acacia melanoxylon (Mimosoideae or Mimosaceae) is a high quality timber tree with an extensive natural distribution in Australia and a wide genetic and phenotypic diversity. Seeds from three widely differing provenances in Tasmania were tested to determine whether they had different responses to various dormancy-breaking treatments. All provenances had limited germination (<11%) if seeds were untreated and between 85% and 91% germination after 40 days if the seeds were nicked. For all...[Show more]
