ARE SEEDS LIVING OR NON LIVING THINGS ?
BECAUSE THEY ONLY RESPIRE THEY DO NOT SHOW ANY OTHER CHARACTERISTICS OF LIVING THINGS?

Asked by Benazir 27th November 2015, 5:21 PM

Answer:
A seed is the embryo of a new plant. Seeds are living things as they contain an embryo that is capable of germinating to produce a new plant under optimum temperature, humidity and availability of water. If seeds were not alive, they would not have been able to germinate, give rise to seedlings and develop into mature plants. Being a living thing, seeds require energy for metabolic activity which they obtain through the process of cellular respiration.
