Plants also utilize respiratory energy to effect a rise of temperature, e. g. in germinating seeds. In certain flowers and inflorescences, the temperature may rise by 10 to 17 AdC above the ambient as a result of intense R. Even higher temperature rises are possible in dense ... Certainly, the pneumotaxic center does not appear to be a rhythmic pacemaker in itself, and it depends on impulses from elsewhere.
