Does cold stratification level out differences in seed germinability between populations?

Populations of seeds can vary greatly in their dormancy-breaking and germination characteristics. The purpose of this study was to determine if such dormancy differences are levelled out by cold stratification. Seeds of 33 annual weed species, each represented by three populations, were tested in light and darkness 7 weeks after harvest and after two stratification treatments: 18 weeks at 3 °C in the laboratory and 19 weeks outdoors in soil during winter. Cold stratification removed population differences in some species, but in several species such differences became apparent only after stratification. This happened either because dormancy became stronger in weakly dormant seeds (winter annuals) or weaker in strongly dormant seeds (summer annuals). In several species, the light requirement for germination increased after stratification. These results clearly indicate that germination tests performed on fresh seeds from a single population may not adequately predict germination percentages in the field.
