Background research on seeds

Before germination, a seed goes through a resting period called dormancy. Germination of seeds is a complex physiological process that starts by imbibition of water after possible dormancy mechanisms have been released by the appropriate triggers, meaning that it resumes growth, bursting through its encasing. (The Seed Biology Place, 2009) This coat acts to protect …
