Although small-seeded species benefit by producing more number of seeds than large seeded-species and have an increased likelihood of entering soil banks, the latter group might counteract the advantage by establishing high number of successful seedlings than the small seeded-species.
Consequently, we anticipate that large-seeded species must germinate faster than small ones to maintain an advantage over the seed bank strategy prevalent in small-seeded species.
Further, there is little evidence that large-seeded species have some advantage in survival over small-seeded species (even within same genus, see Vera, 1997).
2013), we show that 88% of the species have seed mass below 3 mg and nearly 93% have seed mass below 4 mg, reinforcing the selection of small-seeded species in alpine vegetation.
This idea has been reinforced by examining the community assembly changes in Qinhghai-Tibetan Plateau China, where abundant species in an early-successional meadow were shown to be small-seeded species (Zhang et al.
Choose either 'A Grosse Graine' or 'Piedmont', large-seeded types that tolerate heat better than the small-seeded kinds.
Nevertheless, Amin [3] reported that 50% of large-seeded mungbean matured earlier than that of small-seeded type.
Small-seeded genotypes are probably physiologically most efficient, especially at warmer sites and higher latitudes [45].
Red squirrels like to eat small-seeded broadleaf trees and we would like to see more plantings of birch and rowan trees.

Small-seeded broadleaf weeds - lambsquarters, ragweed, wild mustard, nightshade, smartweed, and pigweed.
Large seeds have been demonstrated to have a competitive advantage over smaller seeds by having higher germination rates and having greater nutrient reserves for the young seedlings, which enable the seedlings to grow larger to tap resources earlier than their small-seeded counterparts [14,28,45, 32,48].
Seedlings from large-seeded species should be able to establish under a wider range of environmental conditions that could not be tolerated by seedlings from small-seeded species [3,41,51,30, 16].
Large seeded species are less dependent on light for germination than small-seeded ones.
