Parihar and Pathak's [26] study of the flowering phenology and seed biology of selected tropical perennial grasses revealed that seed germination was very low (depending on percentage seed set), whereas germination in caryopses was much higher (up to 92%).
As constitutive and ecological adaptation of caryopses has been proven with a few temperate grass species such as Chenopodium spp.
For barnyardgrass caryopses, the synchrony values showed quadratic regression, with a maximum estimated value of 0.
Similar results of inhibition of the germination process for barnyardgrass caryopses were recorded with the use of aqueous extracts of Secale cereale L.
The boxes are then placed in the dark at an ambient temperature of 25 [degrees]C, to cause swelling of caryopses.
A number of caryopsis fragments from a long-seeded species of grass were also identified; these caryopses are similar in morphology to those of Stipa.
Undated rice caryopses from non-cultural layers in peat in central Korea, large Poaceae pollen grains, and Oryza-type phytoliths in archaeological contexts suggest rice cultivation in Korea as early as 1500 to 3000 cal.
Anisopogon is similar to Stipeae in characters in addition to those used here, such as features of the guard cells (Kellogg & Campbell, 1987), and amino-acid composition of caryopses (Hock-Hin & Watson, 1987).

The position of the caryopsis from which the mother plant originated also has an influence on the germinability of the caryopses of the next generation or even later generations [Datta et al.
Poaceae), the longer the day length under which plants grow and caryopses mature, the higher the percentage of germination when those caryopses imbibe under continuous light at 25 [degrees] C.
Measurements could lead us to postulate two principal types of wheat (TABLE 2): one type (aestivum/durum) having elongated caryopses, wider on the side with the germ, with a widened apex and a convex contour; another type (compactum), with shortened, rounded shape and projection immediately above the germ.
Although the context of the Kazahari cultigens seems secure, to test the Tokoshinai IV association of the rice in particular, two rice caryopses were radiocarbon-dated at the University of Toronto IsoTrace Radiocarbon Laboratory.
but the barnyard grass caryopses from Kazahari represent wild forms.
