AbstractMethods for overcoming seed dormancy and accelerating seed germination were tested in 8 species native to northeastern Mexico. Growth potential was also studied in the first 10 years of growth. In general, warm water and sulphuric acid treatments were most useful for enhancing germination. Establishment and growth rates varied by species with Acacia farnesiana, Parkinsonia aculeata and Pithecellobium ebano performing best in the plantation setting.
