Caryocar costaricense has a curved, accumbent embryo and the plumule and radicle dehydrate immediately after endocarp dehydration. The dehydration of Lecythis ampla seeds first affects the seed coat and then the meristematic poles ( radical and apical); they die instantly after seed coat dehydration. The seeds enclosed in berries (Calophyllum brasiliense) or drupes (Caryocar costaricense, M. guianensis) are protected by the pericarp tissues, which help maintain seed moisture.
