An Experimental Approach to Seed Biology

  • J. W. Bradbeer
Part of the Tertiary Level Biology book series (TLB)


The experimental approach has been stressed in most of the preceding chapters, commencing with the description of the germination test in Chapter 1. In most cases sufficient information can be found in the text, or at least in the references provided to enable similar experiments to be carried out. For example, Chapters 8 and 9 contain guidance and literature references for the investigation of the maintenance of viability and for seed testing, particularly for cultivated plants.
