The early stages of a plant's life are the bailiwick of the Seed Biology Place, a primer from botanist Gerhard Leubner of Freiburg University in Germany. From the site's 10 chapters, visitors can reap the latest information on seed evolution, dormancy, and other topics. Numerous diagrams will fertilize your understanding of seed anatomy and plant hormones' role in germination. Chapters also sprout abundant links to abstracts and full-text articles by members of Leubner's lab and other researchers. Included is a magnetic resonance image of a barley grain 15 days after pollination.
