Seeds underpin global agriculture and natural ecosystems. Understanding seed biology is fundamental to help mitigate the effects of changing climates and population growth to crop production and ecosystems threatened by environmental change. In this collection published in the Biochemical Journal, guest edited by Professor Christine Foyer, Professor Ilse Kranner and Dr Wanda Waterworth, articles highlight current research in seed biology, providing new insight into aspects ranging from seed development, seed longevity and germination to nutritional aspects of seeds. This work ranges from the fundamental biological mechanisms that underlie the development, storability and subsequent germination of seeds, to the applications of seed science, including resilience of seed germination under stress.
