Five populations belonging to three subspecies of Dianthus rupicola Biv. (D. rupicola subsp. rupicola, D. rupicola subsp.aeolicus, and D. rupicola subsp. lopadusanus) and growing in different geographical areas of Sicily were tested for seedgermination at various temperatures. All populations showed high germination rates with an optimum temperature between15 C° and 25°C. Efficient seed germination might contribute significantly to the preservation of these subspecies which arecurrently exposed to several environmental threats.
