Special Issue "Seed Aging Mechanism"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 January 2024 | Viewed by 2219
Interests: physiology; biochemistry; conservation
Seed ageing is commonly described as the loss of seed quality or viability, which play extremely important roles in agricultural production and food security. Seed aging inevitably occurs, even when stored at low temperatures and low moisture. A series of studies have given us important insights into the regulatory mechanisms in seed production, storage, genetic conservation, habitat regeneration, and testing during seed ageing. This Special Issue of Plants will highlight the physiology, biochemistry, molecular biology and ecology involved in the improvement and technical control of seed ageing.
