Many roads to success: Different combinations of life-history traits provide accurate germination timing in seasonally dry environments

Diego Fernando Escobar, Rafael Rubio De Casas & Leonor P. Cerdeira Morellato
Germination timing is determined by several plant life-history traits. Seed dormancy regulates the time and place of early plant development and spreads recruitment risks over time. Dispersal phenology and syndrome can influence germination timing and buffer spatial heterogeneity. The ecological requirements for germination (the germination niche) can also influence when and where germination takes place. To date, the relative importance of each of these four traits to ensure the phenological adaptation of individual species in...
