Seed dormancy, germination, and seedling establishment of Lespedeza capitata and L. virginica in response to climate change (2016)

Critical components of plant replacement (regeneration) include seed dormancy loss, germination, and seedling establishment. These components, in particular, show potentially greater sensitivity to climate change then do subsequent development stages. While temperature and moisture are critical factors for these early developmental stages, other factors such a soil texture, nutrient level, pH
