The full text article is temporarily unavailable.

We apologise for the inconvenience. Please try again later.

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.
