New discovery of precocious germination in two terrestrial plant species .

Precocious germination, including vivipary and pseudovivipary, is rare in seed plants. We here report the occurrence of vivipary in two Taiwanese species of Ardisia (Myrsinaceae), A. japonica and A. crenata, which grow at an elevation of 830~2080m in humid warm temperate forests. The fruits of these two species, when ripe, contain seeds in which the radicles have penetrated the seed coat. Germination therefore occurs within the unopened fruit.
