Predicting the impact of increasing temperatures on seed germination among populations of Western Australian Banksia (Proteaceae)

Cochrane, Anne; Hoyle, Gemma; Yates, Colin J.; Wood, Jeffrey; Nicotra, Adrienne

Description

Temperature is a significant factor influencing seed germination and for many species temperature-mediated germination cues are vital for plant persistence. Rising temperatures forecast as a result of anthropogenic climate change may have a substantial influence on the population and range dynamics of plant species. Here, we report on the thermal constraints on seed germination in natural populations of four congeneric Banksia species collected from a longitudinal climate gradient in Western...[Show more]
