Seed Structure Parts are: Seed coat Forms a tough  protective layer Food store Provides the  embryo plant  with food. Embryo  shoot Embryo  root Embryo  – grows  into  plant

Seed Dissection Using a scalpel, carefully dissect your  seed in half lengthways. Draw a diagram of what you can see. Identify the parts, and label your drawing (workbook p13).

Germination conditions Seeds need certain conditions to  germinate: Water   to activate enzymes which digest stored food Oxygen Needed for the production of energy for  germination Warmth Needed for the enzymes to work effectively.  Germination is the development of a new plant  from the embryo in a seed.

Germination and Temperature The best temperature for germination of a  species of plant is known as the  optimum  temperature . The optimum temperature is normally  between 15 o C and 30 o C.
