    Effect of Acid Rain on Germination A seed is formed from the ovule of a flower as a result of fertilisation, and is then dispersed from the parent plant. If the seed lands in a suitable place, it will germinate. Germination is the growth of the embryo inside the seed, eventually growing into a mature plant. CONDITIONS NEEDED FOR GERMINATION OXYGEN - is used for aerobic respiration, which provides the energy for many chemical changes involved in the food reserves and making the new

  • Seed Germination

    2362 Words  | 5 Pages

    Introduction: Seed germination is a process where the quiescence seed imbibed with water, the seed radical elongates and breaks through the seed coat surrounding the embryo. However, most of the plant seeds do not germinate immediately and they under goes period of dormancy. These dormant seeds are normally dehydrated, containing inactive enzymes and resistant to unfavorable condition. These characteristic allowed the seed to be dispersed before germination occur and survive adverse environmental

    Abscisic acid is one of the phytohormones present in plants and was firstly discovered in 1963 by Frederick Addicott and his colleagues (Fursule, Kulkarni, & Agarkar, 2006). It plays an important role in regulating the physiological process especially in extreme conditions, besides plant growth and plant development. Under non-stressful conditions, abscisic acid presents in low levels in plants cells. This is because plant cells require just a low level of abscisic acid for normal growth. In
