Copy of Handbook Arial (8)

Flower Seed Testing Committee

This handbook is a special venture of ISTA to collect all the knowledge in laboratory seed testing of flower seeds. It contains comprehensive laboratory seed testing methods for the most frequently tested flower species. It is intended to assist the practising seed analyst by collecting as many illustrations and descriptions as possible to give guidance in everyday laboratory flower seed testing of purity, germination, and viability. The handbook also provides assistance in training new analysts for flower seed testing in accordance with the international principles. The handbook contains 62 working sheets with a series of procedures and detailed descriptions, full-colour pictures, instructions, and conditions of the most important laboratory seed tests on flower species or genera. For easy reference, the families and the genera are arranged in alphabetical order. The Introduction helps to handle and understand the parts of the working sheets and a glossary is included to give relevant information about the expressions used in seed analysis. Available as an electronic, downloadable, printable PDF copy only. Editor: Zita Ripka Chair (2010 to present): Rita Zecchinelli Vice-Chair (2010 to 2019): Sharon Davidson ISBN 978-3-906549-45-3
