McCarty, M.K., Scifres, C.J., Smith, A.L. and Horst, G.L. (1969) Germination and early seedling development of musk and plumeless thistle (Research Bulletin: Bulletin of the Agricultural Experiment Station of Nebraska No. 229)
The present study was conducted to determine the effects of some simulated environmental variables on the germination of musk and plumeless thistle achenes. The two species appear to occupy a somewhat similar role in the natural vegetation, and a direct comparison of germination characteristics was sought.
