Trait stasis versus adaptation in disjunct relict species: evolutionary changes in seed dormancy-breaking and germination requirements in a subclade of Aristolochia subgenus Siphisia (Piperales)

Article Topic(s): Germination
Research Setting(s): Laboratory

Species Referenced: Aristolochia tomentosa (Woolly dutchman's pipe),

Abstract

Seed germination studies indicated that Aristolochia tomentosa seeds have either morphological dormancy or morphophysiological dormancy and do not require cold stratification for growth of the underdeveloped embryo.
