Delayed Germination of Seeds: A Look at the Effects of Adult Longevity, the\ud Timing of Reproduction, and Population Age/Stage Structure
Publisher: University of Chicago Press
mesheuropmc: food and beverages
The effects of adult longevity, the timing of reproduction, and population age/stage structure on the evolution of seed dormancy are explored in both constant and variable environment models. In the constant environment models complete germination is the evolutionarily ... View more
