|A seed is a miracle
waiting to happen. The embryo comes pre-packaged with a food
supply and the vital genetic information needed to become a plant
just like its parents. Seeds exist in a state of dormancy, absorbing
oxygen, giving off carbon dioxide, and slowly using up their
stored food reserves. During this process the seed continually
monitors the external environment waiting for ideal conditions
specific for the particular seed. Once the ideal conditions occur,
the seed breaks dormancy and germinates.
In this project you must display
different stages of seed germination.
