Seed Science and Technology published ‘The quantification of ageing and survival in orthodox seeds’ four decades ago. That paper explained the improved seed viability equation, which quantifies seed longevity in response to storage environment, and the implications for seed ageing and seed quality, including likely seedling emergence. Developments in seed science, and anhydrous biology more widely, associated with that well-cited paper are summarised here.
