Abstract

Evaluates seed germination for Annona glabra from wetland areas in Veracruz, Mexico. Seeds are recalcitrant and dispersed by water. Varying moisture and light levels were evaluated after being stored in water or buried in wet soil. Annona glabra seeds germinated more readily after a long storage period, either stored buried in wet soil or stored floating in water. Annona glabra germinated better in sunny, low-moisture conditions.
