Changes Within the Seeds of Juniperus scopulorum During the Processes of After-ripening and Germination
Abstract:After-ripening of seed is often defined as a series of chemical and physical changes that take place within a dormant seed between the time it ripens and the time it becomes able to germinate. Considerable information about these changes in various seeds is now available. Whereas after-ripening in all seeds proceeds more or less along the same lines, changes in individual substances do not appear to be identical in all instances. It is a well established fact, of course, that after-ripening requirements of seeds of various species vary considerably.
