Germination is the development of a young embryo into a young seedling We need germination for plants to grow With no plants there would be less oxygen and less food for animals In germination you need water the right temperature sunlight minerals and oxygen You need water to begin germination When water soaks the seed coat it splits open The seed coat is the outer layer of the seed coat that protects it Water softens the seed coat making it easier to split The temperature depends on the seed Some seeds need to be hot before they can grow These seeds are probably in areas with a lot of heat or fire When fires kill the mature plants the seeds can germinate Now that the mature plants are dead the seedlings have room to germinate If the seeds could grow any time there would not be many seeds left This is why seeds need minerals and energy The part of the seed that turns into a seedling is called the embryo The embryo in the seed needs energy to germinate As the embryo develops it will use up all its stored food After it has used up all its stored food it will die unless it gets energy to make its own food The process of making its own food is called photosynthesis The seeds also need nutrients and minerals to grow The seeds need oxygen to begin respiration Respiration is breathing in oxygen and breathing out carbon dioxide For plants it is the opposite Respiration lets germinating seeds make energy for photosynthesis Even you give a plant everything it needs you cannot force it to grow It takes time for the seeds to grow Just like we cannot become grown-ups in
