Homework Help: Plant Physiology

  1. Sep 18, 2008 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    List 2 enviromental events that might have triggered seed germination and growth into wild flowers

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I thought smoke from wild fires was a cue however I was told it has to do with the weather

    The wild flower part is throwing me off, how all of a sudden a seed from a plant germinates and grows into a wild flower..not natural

    A wild flower just means a flower growing in the wild, like one in a meadow or forest, rather than a cultivated one, like you might plant in your garden. Is that what was giving you difficulty?
