Abstract: The objective of this study was to evaluate the internal morphology of seeds of Campomanesia pubescens (Mart. ex DC.) O. Berg with varying water content through X-ray image analysis, and correlate the images with the germination of these seeds. Fruits were collected in Jataí, Goiás, Brazil, and taken to the Seed Laboratory of the Federal Institute Goiano, Rio Verde Campus, where they were processed and the seeds were extracted. To establish the predetermined water content (43%, 37%, 34%, 31%, and 28% wet basis… Show more

“…Regarding the initial water content, all genotypes of A. sellowiana had an initial content of 28% (Table 1), value relatively lower than what was found by Gomes et al (2013) (36%), and higher than the one described by Santos et al (2004) (21%). The high amount of water in seeds of Myrtaceae family is common and may reach 70% for some species (Amaral et al, 2019). According to the same authors water content was an effective index to assist in determining the physiological maturity of seeds, which is directly connected to the germination process.…”

“…sellowiana is well-known as goiabeira-serrana, goiabeira do mato or feijoa (Ducroquet & Ribeiro, 1991), and is native to the southern Brazilian plateau (Ducroquet, et al, 2000). It is under a domestication process, occurring within natural populations in understory layer of areas with altitudes above 800 m, a fleshy fruit, sweet and acidulous taste with excellent aroma, consumed in natura or processed (Ducroquet et al, 2000;Thorp & Bieleski, 2002), and demonstrating great market potential (Amaral et al, 2019). It also has the peculiarity of presenting edible petals (Mattos, 1986) and important characteristics for ornamental use (Gomes et al, 2017) and is recommended for the recovery of affected ecosystems (Fockink et al, 2020) also in Pharmacology (Santos et al, 2019).…”

“…Recent reports have show the usefulness of radiographic images for embryo abnormality detection, identification of seed coat mechanical damages, determination of seed maturation stage, full seed selection, and general assessment of seed quality (Amaral et al, 2019;Gibbert et al, 2019;Medeiros et al, 2019;. X-ray tests are recommended by the Rules for Seed Testing (Brasil, 2009) and by the International Seed Testing Association (ISTA, 2003) aiming to detect full, empty, damaged, or insect-predated seeds.…”
