Seed Desiccation in Quercus floribunda

Quercus floribunda seedlings

I conducted studies under the supervision of Dr. Ranbeer S. Rawal in the laboratory and an experimental nursery to understand seed germination behavior in relation to desiccation for different drying periods in Quercus floribunda. Based on the results we recommend that the seeds of Q. floribunda should be sown within 7 days, when the seed moisture content remains above the critical level of 34%.
