It would suffice to keep up the full number of a tree, which lived on an average for a thousand years, if a single seed were produced once in a thousand years, supposing that this seed were never destroyed and could be ensured to germinate in a fitting place; so that, in all cases, the average number of any animal or plant depends only indirectly on the number of its eggs or seeds.

Rust is favored by temperatures between 55° and 90°F. The spores need several hours of dew or rain for spores to germinate and infect the host. Puccinia asparagi thrives where dews or fogs are prevalent because droplets of water are needed for successful infection of the host plant.
Seeds do not require any treatment, and take 19 to 51 days to germinate.
Seeds may be modified to require an excessive amount of water before germinating, so as to ensure a sufficient water supply for the seedling's survival.

Seeds which remain on our shelves do not germinate, but those which are planted in the soil do; so it is with the yeast plants.
Spores germinate under suitable conditions of moisture and temperature, and grow into branching filaments called hyphae, pushing out like roots into the rotting wood.
Spores overwinter on host plant residue, germinate in early spring, and produce new infections on growing asparagus spears.
Successive generation of urediaspores may be produced, germinate in the presence of moisture, and cause infections every 12 to 14 days until late summer, causing severely affected fields to appear reddish brown.
The seeds germinate relatively well, over several weeks.
The spores can then germinate there and start the life cycle over again.
Therefore, it would perhaps be safer to assume that the seeds of about 10/100 plants of a flora, after having been dried, could be floated across a space of sea 900 miles in width, and would then germinate.
These spores can germinate directly to produce hyphae.
When they land in an unfavorable location, they can alternately germinate to produce a long, slender capilliconidiophore that bears a single, falcate capilliconidium.
