Notes: Moisture Stress Affects Germination of Longleaf and Slash Pine Seeds
Abstract:Osmotic stresses greater than 8 atm markedly reduced germination of both Pinus palustris Mill. and P. elliottii Engelm, seeds. At stresses of 18 or more atm, no germination occurred. Moisture content at the onset of germination was twice as high in longleaf as in slash pine seeds.
