By Noah Webster.
The initial stages of the growth of a seed into a seedling. The embryonic shoot (plumule) and embryonic root (radicle) emerge and grow upwards and downwards respectively. Food reserves for germination come from endosperm tissue within the seed and/or from the seed leaves (cotyledons). (Concise Dictionary of Biology, 1990)
