Title: Germination of Cherrybark and Nuttal Oak Acorns Following Flooding

Author: Briscoe, C. B.;

Date: 1961

Source: Rio Piedras, Puerto Rico: US Forest Service, Tropical Forest Research Center. Ecology 42(2): 430-431

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication (MISC)

Description: Frequency and duration of flooding is undoubtedly one of the most important environmental factors affecting species distribution in bottomland forests. In the life of a tree this influence is first exerted on the seed, and the capacity of seeds to retain viability after submergence by flood water may well be an important factor in determining the success of a species in a particular ecological niche.

Keywords: germination, cherrybark, nuttal oak
