The effect produced by imbibition
and syneresis on the dimensions of the impression and on the overall detail reproduction on the cast has been studied with varying results.
gardneriana seeds not subjected to water stress obtained higher germination speed and, as the water availability decreased in the substrate, the seeds needed a longer time for imbibition
and germination, evidencing lower germination speed.
The results of the conductivity tests can be affected by water quality, amount of tested seeds, temperature, imbibition
time and degree of moisture (Bewley, Bradford, Hilhorst, & Nonogaki, 2013).
Conversely, seed lots with low electrolyte leakage (measured as low electrical conductivity) during imbibition
are considered of high vigor (AOSA, 2009).
Seeds were considered to have completed germination when the radicle protruded through the endothelium and its length exceeded 1 mm within seven days from the start of imbibition
These processes occur mainly after the seeds have imbibed, when metabolism is activated (phase II of imbibition
curve), however before the protrusion of the radical (BRADFORD, 1995).
Rodents treated with PCBs and commercial Aroclors exhibited a wide range of estrogenic effects including precocious puberty increases in the ovarian wet weight and water imbibition
Another technique we are piloting in the Bahrain Field is the Forced Imbibition
steam concept for heavy oil recovery in one our fractured carbonate reservoirs.
In this way, the entropic favorability of solvent imbibition
manifests itself, as there is no longer as large an enthalpic penalty for swelling the network structure by greater solvent uptake.
brasiliense seeds, found the necessity of removing the seed coat to occur imbibition
, an essential fact for the germination process.
2007) determined that the seed coat in Aplectrum is resistant to water, but that water imbibition
is needed for germination.
Being an organ-specific autoimmune reaction, a humoral agent (IgG antibody) produces inflammation of extra ocular muscles characterized by pleomorphic cellular infiltration associated with increased secretion of glycosaminoglycans and osmotic imbibition
These surgeries have an increased level of technical difficulty and likely have poor recipient vascularity and graft bed with possibly impaired imbibition
, inosculation and formation of granulation tissue.
The effect of salinity on seed germination could be due to the toxic effect of salts on seeds or to the osmotic effect that prevents the seeds from imbibition
It is not necessary for seeds to be continuously imbibed; even a short period of imbibition
can improve seed longevity (Villiers & Edgecumbe, 1975).
