Abstract

Phytochrome is the plant pigment which participate in several developmental processes regulated by light. In recent years this pigment has been associated with the detection of the environmental conditions but there is still a gap of information concerning the physioecological role of the pigment. In this paper the knowledge of the role of phytochrome on seed photoblastism is analysed based on several recent works done on the subject mainly with pioneer rain forest plants from Los Tuxtlas, Veracruz.
