We are looking for seed germination data collected in any project, for any species and from any region of the world. During the first call for data we are focusing on data fields that, in our experience, are routinely recorded in germination experiments, thereby allowing for synthesis and comparison of large quantities of data.

Datasets must be submitted in the required format (see template) in order to be included in the database. Each dataset must be submitted in a single table in csv or txt format to . Within this table, each row will represent a germination record. A record is defined here as a replicate (e.g. a Petri dish) of a germination experiment (with a controlled set of conditions including temperature, light, etc.) and its associated final germination proportion (expressed as number of viable seeds sown, number of germinated seeds). Columns of the table must be named as follows, with asterisk (*) indicating mandatory information:
