  Seed - MSN Encarta
Seeds of the angiosperm, or flowering plant, differ from those of the gymnosperm, or conifer and related plants, in being enclosed in the ovary that later forms a fruit; gymnosperm seeds lie exposed on the scales of the cones.
Some seeds, in addition, have projects from the seed coat that serve to aid in the absorption of water when the seed is about to germinate or that merely form an additional protective coating about the seed.
A specific number of seeds are counted out, and the seeds are placed in an environment favorable to development; the percentage of viable seed in the batch of seed being tested is an index of viability of all seeds of the same lot.

  Seed - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A seed is the ripened ovule of gymnosperm or angiosperm plants.
In the latter case, the seed coat protects the seed from digestion, while perhaps weakening the seed coat such that the embryo is ready to sprout when it gets deposited (along with a bit of fertilizer) far from the parent plant.
The function of a seed is one of serving as a delaying mechanism: a way for the new generation to suspend its growth and allow time for dispersal to occur or to survive harsh, unfavorable conditions of cold or dryness, or both.

 Seed
The formation of the seed completes the process of reproduction in seed plants (started with the development of flowers and pollination), with the embryo developed from the zygote and the seed coat from the integuments of the ovule.
Seeds have been an important development in the reproduction and spread of flowering plants, relative to more primitive plants like mosses, ferns and liverwort, which do not have seeds and use other means to propagate themselves.
In the case of sunflower and corn "seeds", what is sown is the seed enclosed in a shell or hull, and the potato is a root or stem depending on what is being sowed.

 Saving Seed
Before saving seed, consider the method of pollination, the time of seed bearing, whether the plant is a hybrid, and the manner of seed collection.
To obtain seed, the roots are dug in the fall and stored between 32 and 45 degrees F through the winter.
Seed saved from hybrids produces many different plant types and is a disappointment for any Gardener who has unknowingly saved and planted hybrid seed.

SEED was designed for use by the earthquake research community, primarily for the exchange between institutions of unprocessed earth motion data.
The SEED format was not designed for use with non-time series data, nor with time series data sampled at unequal intervals in time (nevertheless, mechanisms for including console logs were easily accommodated).
SEED allows you to use a modified subset of the format for data recording at a field station, but several constraints are imposed by the real-time nature of station processors.

 Seed Germination Database
Sow the seeds in moist sand, pressing them into the sand until only a small part of the fl seed is visible and grow in a temperature of 75 degrees F in the dark and ensure that the sand always remains moist.
The seeds should be sown on the surface of the moist compost, covered to their recommended depth if necessary and the container is then placed inside a Polythene bag after which the end is sealed with an elastic band.
The seeds are best sown in containers of free draining compost and placed in a cold frame or plunged up to their rim outdoors in a shaded part of the garden, preferably on the north side of the house avoiding cold drying winds and strong sun.

 Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew: Millennium Seed Bank Project: Seed Dormancy   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Seed dormancy has evolved in plants to ensure survival from the time of seed dispersal to the time of germination and seedling establishment.
Physiologically dormant seeds in the Apiaceae, Iridaceae, Liliaceae, Papaveraceae and Ranunculaceae families usually respond positively to a period of moist storage under cold or warm conditions before sowing at the optimum germination temperature.
Seeds with physical dormancy are often chipped or covering structures are removed at the MSB to allow water uptake or remove chemical inhibitors or mechanical constraint and hence allow germination.
