Then total germinant was subtracted from the total plants to get number of tillers per unit area.

In dryland riparian environments, a spring or summer flood pulse that either triggers or coincides with germination would promote establishment if it resulted in a moist surface soil to support germinant growth but the flood recession and accompanying soil drying was not so rapid that it outpaced growth of roots of seedlings to the deeper, permanent source of moisture needed for the post-flood growing season.
Deoxycholate is a potent germinant but is highly toxic to vegetative cells; cholate stimulates spore germination and vegetative C.
In seedbed trials, germinant density with alternative fumigants can equal that of methyl bromide or, as in the case of some dazomet trials, result in losses of up to one-third of the seed sown as the result of phytotoxicity from residual fumigant (Littke et al.
Vertebrate exclosures are best employed for species with relatively larger seeds such as Liatris ohlingerae, Eryngium cuneifolium, and Polygonella basiramia that are most vulnerable during the seed to germinant transition.
Plant culture, mycorrhizal inoculation and growth conditions: Six germinant trifoliate orange seeds were placed in one plastic pot (17.5 cm upper mouth diameterx13 cm bottom mouth diameterx16.5 cm height) supplied with 2.8 kg of autoclaved (121degC, 0.11 MPa, 1 h) growth substrate (soil/vermiculite/sphagnum, 5/1/1, v/v/v), whose characteristics were pH 6.3, 9.8 g/kg organic matter, and 17.71 mg/kg available phosphorus.
Thus, germination cueing determines a particular set of environmental conditions that a germinant will encounter (Donohue, 2005) and seeds often respond to combinations of environmental factors that are most favourable to the seedling growth and survival (Simao et al., 2007; De La Barrera and Nobel, 2003)
Modelling the effect of a heat shock and germinant concentration on spore germination of a wild strain of Bacillus cereus.
cereus spores, and germinant receptors--gerI5 and gerL1--played a role in the mechanism of germination induced by high pressure and elevated temperatures.
L-alanine was used as a germinant during the study (data not shown) since it had been reported that L-alanine could initiate germination of B.
