Figure 3

Ex situ seed germination rate (%) of 21 species pretreated with 10% smoke water, 20 mM potassium nitrate or boiling water, and control (sterile water) for 48 h. Seeds were incubated at °C temperature with 16 h light for five weeks. Bars represent means of three replicates and standard errors. Different letters represent significant differences across treatments at within each species.
