About this book

Presents edited and revised papers from the 7th International Workshop on Seeds, held in Salamanca, Spain, in May 2002. Topics covered include: Seed development; Seed germination and dormancy; Dessication; Seed ecology; and Seed biotechnology.


Seed development - physiological and molecular aspects of the control of dormancy and germination in developing sorghum caryopses; seed germination and dormancy - hormonal and molecular events during seed dormancy release and germination; desiccation - gene expression during loss and regaining of stress tolerance at seed priming and drying; seed ecology - new approaches to the study of evolution of physical and physiological dormancy, the two most common classes of seed dormancy on Earth; seed biotechnology - genetic analysis and QTL mapping for cytosolic glutamine synthetase (GS) and germination traits in maize grain.
