    1359 Words  | 6 Pages

    Seed is a fertilized matured ovule consisting of an intact embryo, endosperm and or cotyledon with protective covering (seed coat). The eventual function of the surviving seed is its germination. A dormant seed is one that does not have an ability to grow in a predefined time frame under any combination of normal physical environmental factors, that are generally is favourable for its germination. A viable seed goes from a dormant, quiescent state to one of active growth, allowing the embryo to break

    Seed germination is crucial when looking at a seed's life. It is the beginning of its existence and plays a key role in how the seed will grow from there on out. When looking at seed germination dealing with various salt concentrations, the outcome of the experiment can result in many factors. If salt concentrations affect the rate of seed germination, then a positive control of water would germinate faster than the affected seeds with various diluted salt concentrations. In the end, the effect of

    a) Seed Germination and Seed Emergence Germination is the process that starts with the uptake of water by the dormant dry seed and terminates with the emergence of the radicle. At this stage, intense metabolic activity will change that involve metabolic activity and cell elongation process (Bewlwy, 2001). Seed germination occurs when the sufficient water had been absorbed so that the seed coat will become soft and elastic. The coleorhiza (the sheath covering the radicle or embryonic primary root)

    Seed Dispersal Lab Sam O’Quinn Per. 5 Introduction- Whenever plants grow reproduce, they have to have a method to disperse their seeds. They can do this in one of three ways: through wind, animals, or by water. There are 6 different methods of wind dispersal. There is the glider, parachute, helicopter, spinner, cottony, and the tumbleweed methods. With the glider method the glider swoops through the air and glides the seed. The parachute method works like an umbrella by using tiny hairs at the

  • Essay On Seed Dispersal Experiment

    713 Words  | 3 Pages

    Seed Dispersal The experiment will be investigating how seeds are dispersed by nature. Seed dispersal is the transportation of seeds from their parent plants. Plants are not mobile, therefore seed dispersal is necessary to transport their seeds. Seed dispersal is important because if the seeds are not scattered, then the seeds will grow near parent plants, thus resulting in competition for light, water, space, and nutrients. Seed dispersal also helps reduce predation for the seed. Predators tend

    The seeds of a plant is vital for the survival a species and the genetic information of the individual parent. In plants, seed dispersal is the movement of the plant’s offspring away from places with high population density. Plants produce new seeds in order for the seeds to later grow into new plants; however, the seeds need to be able to obtain sunlight, water, and nutrients from the soil, so, the seeds can cannot fall to the ground next to the parent. If the seeds are not dispersed, then the new
