    • Abstract


      Morphology of germination and seedling development have been studied inNymphaea lotus Auct. varpubescens (Willd) HK. f. and Th. andTrapa natans L. varbispinosa (Roxb.) Makino.Nymphaea germination has been grouped as a separate type, namely,Nymphaeal and that ofTrapa asTrapael. InNymphaea andTrapa seedlings, the extension growth is at the mid portion of the cotyledon (mesocotyl) unlike at its base as in the monocotyledons.
