Action of nitric oxide in sesame seeds (Sesamum indicum L.) submitted to stress by cadmium,Ação protetora do óxido nítrico em sementes de gergelim (Sesamum indicum L.) submetidas ao estresse por cádmio

Journal of Seed Science, 38(1), 22–29.

By: R. Oliveira Pires*, G. Souza, A. Cardoso, D. Santos Dias & E. Borges

Contributors: R. Pires*, G. Souza, A. Cardoso, D. Dias & E. Borges

author keywords: SNP; vigor; germination; antioxidant system
TL;DR: The NO due to the application of SNP was beneficial, providing an increase in germination, vigor and growth of seedlings, and there was a progressive increase of the antioxidant enzymes activity in the period of 0 to 24 hours, showing an organization of the antioxidants system in the sesame seeds throughout germination time.

Seed germination of Schinus molle L. (Anacardiaceae) as related to its anatomy and dormancy alleviation

Seed Science Research, 26(4), 351–361.

author keywords: acid scarification; pepper tree; photoblastic seeds; seed imbibition; seed physiology; seed structure
TL;DR: S. molle seeds are positively photoblastic and show physiological dormancy which can be alleviated by acid scarification and dry storage, and Seeds can be stored for over 12 months without significant losses in germination parameters compared to newly collected seeds. (via Semantic Scholar)
