  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.
In a few plants, such as the orchids, the embryo is a small, undifferentiated mass of cells until after the seed has parted from the parent plant; during the period between separation from the parent plant and eventual germination, the undifferentiated cells develop into an embryonic root, bud, stalk, and leaf.
In most other plants this development occurs prior to seed dispersal: the embryonic root, or radicle, usually grows toward the micropyle; the embryonic bud, called plumule, or epicotyl, is at the end of the embryo opposite to the radicle; the embryonic stem, or hypocotyl, connects the radicle with the seed leaves, or cotyledons.

Seeds can be planted in various ways, however, strict control of numbers of seeds planted can be maintained, and separate rows of different lines can be planted in the same pot for critical comparisons with the techniques described here.
Seeds left at ambient temperature and relative humidity lose viability relatively quickly, although they may be viable for about two years if stored in a dry atmosphere at room temperature.
Seed viability is the condition in which seeds are alive, have the potential to germinate and develop into normal reproductively mature plants, given the appropriate conditions.

  Plant - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Plants are distinguished from green algae, from which they evolved, by having specialized reproductive organs protected by non-reproductive tissues.
Early seed plants are referred to as gymnosperms (naked seeds), as the seed embryo is not enclosed in a protective structure at pollination, with the pollen landing directly on the embryo.
The angiosperms, comprising the flowering plants, were the last major group of plants to appear, emerging from within the gymnosperms during the Jurassic and diversifying rapidly during the Cretaceous.

 Fossil Record of the Seed Plants
The earliest seed plants produced their seeds along their branches without specialized structures, such as cones or flowers, unlike most living seed plants.
Seed plants were thus overshadowed in their early evolution by plants which did not produce seeds.
By the Permian, the seed plants were beginning to produce large trees, and by the Triassic, all major groups of seedplants had appeared, except for the flowering plants.

 Hybrid Varieties and Saving Seed
Plants are grown from seed produced and the result of this cross pollination should have a good habit and good color.
In the case of seed saving, a part of the row or maybe a few plants in the row are tagged as those to be allowed to produce seed.
Although the seed may be removed from the pod, it is generally best to store them in the pod until ready for planting at which time the pods may be split open and the seed removed.

 Genome Biology | Full text | Expressed sequence tag analysis in Cycas, the most primitive living seed plant
The Cycadales (cycads) are the most primitive living seed plants and have endured over 270-280 million years since their origins in the Lower Permian [1,2].
Such characteristics include pollen tubes, which release motile sperm before fertilization; dichotomous branching (versus axillary branching in higher plants); and ovules, which contain a large, free-nuclear megagametophytic stage, that are borne on the margins of leaf-like megasporophylls [5-7].
The study of cycads has proved to be useful in reconstructing plant evolution, in particular in understanding the rise of important plant structural innovations such as the evolution of seeds [47].

It should also be noted that the "progymnosperms" are represented by a box of a different color, in order to make it clear that they are not actually seed plants, but rather are included here because they are believed to be the closest relatives of the seed plants.
