    ABSTRACT. Seeds being able to germinate while being exposed to various levels of salt concentration is vital to its survival. In this experiment, Buckwheat seeds were examined with different concentrations of NaCl to see the rate at which they germinated, if germination took place at all. Every day for a week, a log was kept with the conditions/environment the seeds were kept in and to see if any changes had occurred. The results of the experiment showed that the Buckwheat seeds grew best with a

    Abstract Why do seeds disperse to form new plants? If the seeds simply fell and grew beneath the parent plants they would be too overcrowded and would be starved of nutrients. So it is important that the seeds are dispersed over a wide area where they stand a better chance of finding the right condition to grow. In this experiment I predicted that the red color of jello would have the highest mean number of seeds removed from the aluminum tin pan. Also, between site 1 and site 2 of jello set out

    Seed Germination Seed germination is the process in which seeds or spores sprout and begin to grow after being dormant for a period of time. The length of dormancy varies depending environmental conditions in which the seed is surrounded by. The environmental conditions that determine when a seed will begin to germinate are the temperature, oxygen, the amount of light, and the supply of water (Germination, accessed 23 February 2010, http://www.answers. com/topic/germination).

    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

    the germination of plants. As I know that sunflower seeds have a fairly short germination span, they will allow me to carry out this experiment more accurately as germination deviations will be clearly identifiable. For this reason my aim is to determine whether varying concentrations of alcohol and/or tobacco effect or prevent the germination of sunflower seeds. My research question is, “Does alcohol and/or tobacco negatively effect sunflower seed germination?” I hypothesise that both the alcohol

    Her Family Seed It is the dawn of summer; in a large open corn field, a tiny girl with skinny legs stands at the edge. Far from her, a giant tractor ravishes and cracks the earth. The sharp deadly blades cut deep. With each cut, a fresh color of the earth appears, much darker than the layer before. With each slash, the air fills with fresh earthy scents of dead-decayed corn plants. In another gash, another grasshopper flies into the air, away from danger. With each catastrophic advance, the

    Seed storage is the process of preserving viable seeds from the time harvested or collected to the time required for planting or sowing. Seed storage is important as it secures the supply of good quality seeds for sowing whenever needed as well as to maintain the seed in good physiological and morphological condition (Ellis et al., 1990; Hong and Ellis, 1992). Seed storage ensures the maintenance of germplasm over time for improved plant breeding programs (Wang, 1975). Storage of seeds as ex situ
