Abstract

The storage of dormancy or active life in seed is on their chemical composition and anatomic structure, as well on environmental factors. According to the season upon which seeds enter or are in dormancy, one can discern a primary and a secondary dormancy, the first starting during seed formation or right after morphological ripening and, the second one, after primary dormancy. Forms of seminal dormancy and influencing factors, as well as some aspects of germination stages are introduced.
