Different structures have been shown to act as a water gap in seeds with physical dormancy (PY), and in Fabaceae they are commonly located in the hilar region. However, the function of the pleurogram, a structure in the extra-hilar region that is common in legume seeds, remains unknown. Our aims were to review the literature for occurrence of the pleurogram in Fabaceae, determine if the pleurogram can open, and compare the functional morpho-anatomy of water gaps in seeds of 11 Senna species.
