Investigating Seed Germination

One of a series of resources from Science & Plants for Schools (SAPS) investigating key topics in plant biology.

This activity allows students to investigate many factors that influence seed germination, including temperature, light, nutrient levels, pollutant effects, tropisms and so on.

It provides a convenient, cheap and replicable method that can be used by the whole class, or by individual students wishing to carry out an independent investigation, suitable for Key Stage Three, GCSE and A level.
