Therefore, the characteristics of the nonlinear seepage cannot be ignored in the study of imbibition
of tight cores .
After this quick imbibition
, the moisture content reduced gradually until it reaches 50.5% and 26.7% of water in a longer period of imbibition
, in the seeds with and without tegument respectively.
This implies that seed priming may improve seed germination of maize seeds by speeding up imbibition
, which could contribute to facilitate emergence phage of maize after raining in the semiarid area.
With regards to Aquilegia, the protocol is the same as that for Campanula except carrying out the imbibition
for 24 hours in 500 ppm GA rather than in distilled water.
The governing equation for imbibition
phenomenon at common interface is in the form of non linear partial differential equation.
After spontaneous imbibition
the percentage of surface acting agents are available.
The seeds of both ecosystems showed a lineal imbibitions
pattern characterized by a steady and slow increase in moisture content until radicle emergence started after 118 hours of imbibitions
Nevertheless, coatings may have undesirable side effects, including slowing imbibition
. These effects are believed to reduce the germination rate of seeds, and would probably increase with the application of multi-layer coatings.
The increase was most accentuated after 84 h of imbibitions
at 30[degrees]C, a period in which root protrusion was also observed at this temperature, displaying activity equivalent to 333.36% of initial levels.
ROS released from seeds during imbibitions
was determined as described by Schoper et al.
Priming may improve germination by accelerating imbibitions
, which in turn would facilitate the emergence phase and the multiplication of radical cells .
Li and Horne  presented a different type of normalized recovery for gas-water system imbibitions
