Seeds of many plants persist in the soil for decades or even centuries. Knowing which species persist is vital to those concerned with weed biology and vegetation restoration, among other things. This is the first attempt to bring together everything that is known about soil seed density and persistence in every species in northwest Europe. The text gives an overview of the data and also provides clear instructions for those about to undertake work on soil seed banks.Review:
