Winterhärte der Butia capitata-Keimlinge, M. Lorek
Abstract: The fruits of Butia capitata (Mart.) Becc. carry up to three embryos. Possibly, this might be a strategy of resisting stress factors, for example frost. The survival of the three embryos was tested under comparable conditions in plain garden soil. No significant difference in the frost resistance occurred within the different embryo groups. More field-studies with a larger number of samples are needed. - With 11 figures and 1 table.
Keywords: Butia capitata - frost resistance - three embryos
