Influence of Light on Seed Germination of Calamus manan
Mohamad, Aminuddin and Mohd. Said, Siti Hasanah (1990) Influence of Light on Seed Germination of Calamus manan. Pertanika, 13 (3). pp. 327-330.
Freshly collected seeds of calamus manan were sown under three different light conditions : a)in the open b)under moderate shade of " attap" roofing and c)under intact forest canopy. At 2 , 4 and 6 month intervals, the sample that had been sown under shade (b) and (c)were moved into the open. Germination under all treatment occured percentage achieved 50% by about 6 weeks. Under forest the cumulative germination percentage did not reach 50%. The result indicate that although the seed appear insensitive to light regimes for germination some amount of light ( attap conditions ) optimize germination of Calamus manan.
