A correlation between thermoluminescence yield and the mean lethal radiation exposure of some plant seeds is described. The results of thermoluminescence measurements on the main classes of seed components are also reported. These results seem to indicate that the physical interactions among fatty acids cause, in the species studied, different ability to retain energy. A possible connection between the last observation and the radiosensitivity of species is discussed.
