Journal: Natural Areas Journal
Article Topic(s): Germination
Research Setting(s): Longleaf pine, Savanna
Species Referenced: Solidago odora (Anisescented goldenrod),
AbstractIn a seed bank longevity experiment, Solidago odora seeds had a viability of 34% after one year of burial and 12% after 2 years of burial. Vernonia angustifolia seeds had a viability of 5% after one year of burial and less than 1% after 2 years of burial.
