Seed germination in Chrysophyllum sp. Nov., a large seeded rainforest species in north Queensland: Effects of seed size, litter depth and seed position

Green, P

Description

Leaf litter affects seed germination in many ways and past studies have shown greater impacts on relatively small seeds, both within and among species. In this shade-house experiment I examined the impact of forest litter on seed germination in Chrysophyllum sp. nov. (Sapotaceae), a large-seeded (2.4 g) rainforest tree from north Queensland. Seed mass varies more than 30-fold in this species, making it useful for studying the role of litter as a possible selective pressure in the evolution of...[Show more]
