Description: Red alder seeds were collected from six locations throughout the natural range of the species. Each seed lot was obtained from a single tree, and the seeds were used to determine germination with and without stratification treatment. Irrespective of treatment, germination varied significantly (P<0.01) by seed lot; it ranged from 59 to 87 percent. Rate of and capacity for germination, however, were not enhanced by stratification. Mature red alder seeds do not require stratification for prompt germination after sowing.
Keywords: Germination (seed), stratification (seed), red alder, Alnus rubra
