Seed dormancy and germination

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Arabidopsis possesses dormancy, as is the case for many other plant species, which is controlled by environmental factors such as light, temperature and time of dry storage as well as by genetic factors. The use of genetics and molecular genetics in Arabidopsis is starting to shed light on some aspects of the mechanism of dormancy and germination by the identification of mutants and genes that control these processes. This review provides an overview of current knowledge of factors and genes controlling seed dormancy and germination in Arabidopsis
