The germinative behavior of nine plant species of the Iberian Peninsula, four of them catalogued as vulnerable or endangered by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature, was studied under controlled laboratory conditions. Most of the species studied germinated better at relatively low temperatures (15 °C and 20 °C) and, in general, high germination rates were also obtained at alternating temperatures (25/15 °C). Coronopus navasii germinated over 60% at 25 °C, the highest temperature used in this study. Lavatera oblongifolia did not surpass 20% germination under any of the conditions assayed. Seed coat scarification increased germination in Helianthemum squamatum, while seed pretreatments with hot water or sulfuric acid were effective in H. polygonoides. Less favorable results were obtained in Lavatera oblongifolia, whereas scarification was completely ineffective in Onobrychis peduncularis ssp. matritensis.
