MeanGermPercent(
  germinated.seeds,
  germ.counts,
  total.seeds,
  intervals,
  partial = TRUE
)

MeanGermNumber(germ.counts, intervals, partial = TRUE)

Arguments

germinated.seeds

Number of germinated seeds

germ.counts

Germination counts at each time interval. Can be partial or cumulative as specified in the argument partial.

total.seeds

Total number of seeds.

intervals

The time intervals.

partial

logical. If TRUE, germ.counts is considered as partial and if FALSE, it is considered as cumulative. Default is TRUE.

Details

Mean germination percentage per unit time (\mjseqn\overlineGP) is computed as follows \insertCiteczabator_germination_1962germinationmetrics.

\mjsdeqn\overline

GP = \fracGPT_k

Where, \mjseqnGP is the final germination percentage, \mjseqnT_k is the time at the \mjseqnkth time interval, and \mjseqnk is the total number of time intervals required for final germination.

Mean number of seeds germinated per unit time (\mjseqn\overlineN) is computed as follows \insertCitekhamassi_optimal_2013germinationmetrics.

\mjsdeqn\overline

N = \fracN_gT_k

Where, \mjseqnN_g is the number of germinated seeds at the end of the germination test, \mjseqnT_k is the time at the \mjseqnkth time interval, and \mjseqnk is the total number of time intervals required for final germination.

Value

The value of mean germination percentage or mean number of seeds per time interval.
