How fire and seasonal temperatures influence the germination of many plant species: Insights from 'Boronia' (Rutaceae)

    An understanding of the mechanisms that promote plant recruitment is essential for effective management of native flora for biodiversity conservation. The first step is identifying how and when seed dormancy is overcome, and the cues required to stimulate germination in nature. Together, these determine the regeneration niche and control the timing of seedling emergence, with important consequences for seedling survival and growth, and for population persistence. They also provide important clues to the most effective treatments for ex situ germination for conservation or horticultural purposes.
