Abstract: reproductive phenology, floral biology, breeding system and pollinators were analyzed on cryptostegia madagascariensis individuals cultivated at federal university of vi?osa campus, municipality of vi?osa, zona da mata of minas gerais state. in addition, seed viability and vigour from naturally opened fruits were tested. seed germination from yellow-green pericarp closed fruits was also tested. flowering of c. madagascariensis occurs mainly in november and december. fruits (follicles) are exhibited during all year, but more frequently in january and february. flowers open during the day and last about 24 hours. they exhibit protandry, secondary pollen presentation and intragynoecial compitum, which results in the production of twin follicles (two follicles per flower). it is self-compatible, but spontaneous self-pollination does not occur due to morphological characteristics. bees should be the main pollinators, as they exhibited the pollinarium attached to their mouthparts. at least one pollinarium was removed per flower. however, the low natural fructification (2.7%) rate indicates that these insects are efficient for pollinaria removal, but less efficient for deposition of collected pollen. the follicles take four months to reach the maximum size (average of 6.44 cm length, 2.45 cm height and 3.4 cm width), and 210 days for opening. each follicle averaged 96.5 seeds. the ideal conditions for seed quality evaluation, from naturally opened follicles, were 30 oc constant temperature and no supplementary light, and counting occurred at the 7th days. seeds from closed follicles showed 93% germination under those conditions.

Abstract: this experiment was conducted with the objective of evaluating the effect of acid scarification and different temperatures on the physiological quality of strelitzia reginae seeds. the seeds were scarified with concentrated sulfuric acid for 0, 3, 5, 7, and 9 minutes. in the laboratory, the seeds were placed in paper towel rolls and taken to the germinator set at 25oc, 20o-30oc, and 30oc. in the germination test at 30 days, normal seedlings (germination), abnormal seedlings, dead seeds, and hard seeds were evaluated. to determine vigor, first germination counting, root length, and germination speed were evaluated. in the greenhouse at room temperature, seeds were sown on a sand bed sterilized with methilbromide, at the depth of 2 cm. emergence percentage and mean number of days to seedling emergence were assessed. higher percentage of germination and better expression of seed vigor was obtained at 25 0c. scarification with concentrated sulfuric acid favored seedling emergence in the greenhouse. in the laboratory, the best results for germination and vigor were obtained for the seeds scarified in sulfuric acid for nine minutes. however, the number of hard seeds obtained at the end of the test justifies the search for other treatments for overcoming the dormancy.

Abstract: coffee seeds have slow and irregular germination, losing fast their viability during storage, and the standard germination test of these seeds requires at least 30 days. besides, the results may not reflect the actual physiological quality of these seeds. the objective of this work was to develop a fast and practical test for evaluating the viability of coffee seeds, which is based on the interpretation of different color hues of exudates from seeds. coffee seeds of the cultivar catuai 44 from six lots were submitted to germination, accelerated aging, and electrical conductivity tests. in the exudates color hue test, coffee seeds without the parchment and the silvery pellicle (four replications of 10 seeds each) were distributed on top of paper towels moistened and then maintained into a germinator, at 25 oc for 24, 48, 72, 96, and 120 h. three classes of color hues were established: colorless, light color hue, and dark color hue, assigning the values of 0, 1, and 3, for each class, respectively. the proposed exudates color hue test can be recommended for the fast assessment of viability for coffee seeds. the most promising results were obtained for seeds with 12% moisture content, after imbibition periods of 72, 96, and 120 h; and with 30% moisture content, after imbibition periods of 72 and 120 h.

Abstract: the researches show that germination tests do not always reveal differences between seed lots, so that other methods have been studied that allow to differentiate the lots using vigor tests. the goal of this research was, therefore, to verify the efficiency of different vigor tests on the evaluation the physiological quality of sorghum seeds and to determine the effects of water volume and imbibition period on the efficiency of the electrical conductivity test to evaluate sorghum seed vigor. the physiological quality of the seeds was evaluated by the germination test, first count, cold test without soil, immersion in ammonium chloride, seedling emergence in greenhouse and accelerated aging. electrical conductivity was determined at 2, 4, 6, 8, 16, 24 and 48 hours imbibition, using four subsamples of 50 seeds, soaked in 50 and 75 ml water, at 25oc. the results showed that the germination test detected two levels of vigor, while the seedling emergence in greenhouse detected three levels of vigor, showing that the germination test has some limitations regarding the differentiation of lots. among vigor tests carried out in the laboratory, the test of accelerated aging and cold test without soil showed a highly significant correlation with seedling emergence in greenhouse. in the test of electric conductivity only the lot of inferior quality was discriminated with 2, 4 and 6 hours of imbibition in 75 ml of water, and with 16 hours of imbibition in 50 ml of water. it was concluded that the accelerated aging and cold test were efficient for vigor evaluation of sorghum seeds compared to the seedling emergence in greenhouse. the test of electric conductivity is not an efficient option for classification of the lots in levels of vigor of sorghum seeds, just identifying lots with low vigor.

Abstract: the slow and erratic germination of papaya seeds has been attributed to inhibitors present in the sarcotesta. this study was undertaken to evaluate the inhibition effect of sarcotesta extract on lettuce seed germination and to quantify phenolic compounds in papaya seeds. papaya fruits of the formosa group, hybrid tainung 01, were harvested in may and september/2005. at each harvest time, seeds with and without sarcotesta were obtained and the germination percentage was evaluated at 15 and 30 days after seeding. a bioassay was performed with lettuce seeds, which germinated in substratum moistened with water (control) and with solutions obtained from papaya sarcotesta extract. the phenolic compounds were quantified in different structures of papaya seeds (sarcotesta, esclerotesta, endosperm and embryo), using tannic acid as standard and the color reaction with folin-ciacalteau reagent measured at 765 nm by spectrophotometry. the bioassay indicated that sarcotesta extract inhibits the germination and growth of the lettuce seedling primary roots due to the presence of inhibitory substances (phenols). a high amount of these substances was found in the papaya seed esclerotesta, followed by the sarcotesta, but there was practically no concentration of these compounds in the embryo and endosperm. seeds extracted from fruits harvested in may 2005 had dormancy and higher phenolic content compared to seeds harvested in september 2005, which did not exhibit dormancy.
