This chapter examines the scientific experimentations aimed at identifying the germination stimulants and compounds present in certain plant forms. It surveys the effects of the different methods, namely wood charring and the bioassay-driven fractionation process, that led to the observation that germination-affecting chemicals may be water soluble, thermostable, and active in low concentrations.

Keywords:   wood charring, bioassay-driven fractionation, germination, plants
