Abstract

Germination tests were carried out on seeds from three Italian populations of Abies alba . Seed germinability was up to 38%. HgCl 2 , NaClO and plant preservative mixture were used as seed-sterilising agents. Despite chemical treatments, Papulaspora rubida and Chaetomium globosum were isolated. The possible role of these fungi in the physiology of silver fir seed germination process was discussed.
