The plants diaspores are dispersed by strong winds. The effect of seed storage containers on aflatoxins pro- duction was investigated for seeds of many crops how- ever, this approach does not provide a comprehensive view of the impact of range seeds. Abundant literature dealing with total phenolic and flavonoids content as well as antioxidant activity came out of different countries including those of the Middle East. The correlations between antioxidant activity and total phenolic content or total flavonoid content were investigated.

Prolonged storage periods were accompanied with decrease in vigor index ranged between slight and significant reduction depending upon the nature of storage containers. Ehpedra alata is used for medicinal purposes. Ephedr other hand, the biotic stresses such as seedborne fungi play an important and vital role in deterioration of seed quality [1,2]. However, preparative HPLC collection of pure flavonoids from Ephedra plant along with NMR experiments would assist in the exact determination of their structure.
