The Effect of High Temperatures on Seed Germination
Abstract:The seeds of certain species of shrubs in the Sierra Nevada Mountains resist higher temperatures than the seeds of the associated coniferous species, and the germination per cent of some is actually raised by heating. This may account for the failure of the conifers to recapture a burned-over area and their replacement by shrubs to develop "brush fields."
