Wetlands are known for comparatively high production of biogenic ethylene from decomposed sediment. Because the gas has various well-documented effects on seed physiology, we asked whether it can be a vital seed germination cue for wetland plants. Specifically, we explored whether ethylene plays an ecological role in (i) breaking/weakening seed dormancy, (ii) broadening the germination niche ...
