CHAPTER 16 SEED PHYSIOLOGY, SEED GERMINATION AND SEEDLING
ECOLOGY- COMMENTARY Richard B. Primack Seedling establishment is
necessary for tree populations to complete their life cycle. Seedling
establishment can be divided into the phase of seed germination and the
subsequent growth of the seedling. The three papers in this section focus on this
sequence in seedling development. All three papers take a broad view of their
subject, and consider a wide ...

Raven and Axelrod (1974) proposed the origins for these families in the tropics of
South America, with subsequent dispersal northward during the Tertiary. It is
likely that these succulents were already adapted to arid environments (possibly
exhibiting CAM) upon their arrival in North America. Even the most primitive
genera of the Cactaceae exhibit nighttime accumulation of organic acids (e.g.,
Pereskia; Nobel and Hartsock 1986b), suggesting early origins of CAM-like
activity.
