    It provides an enforced delay before germination can begin upon maturation of the seed.
    It can provide sufficient time for the dispersal of seeds from the parent plant by weather and/or animals.
    It can provide an enforced delay until environmental conditions exist that are favorable for the growth of the seed.
    all of the above
    none of the above
