Article Topic(s): Germination, Morphology
Research Setting(s): Laboratory
Species Referenced: Chamaecrista nictitans (Sensitive partridge pea),
AbstractDiscusses the results of two experiments. The first experiment measures rates of root elongation during the first four days of growth of four Chamaecrista species, including C. nictitans. The second experiment compares germination characteristics of C. rotundifolia and C. pilosa.
