Salt tolerance in the halophyte Suaeda maritima L. Dum.: evaluation of the effect of salinity upon growth



Salt tolerance in the halophyte Suaeda maritima L. Dum.: evaluation of the effect of salinity upon growth



Journal of Experimental Botany 31(123): 1171-1183



Suaeda maritima plants grown in highly saline conditions (340 mol m-3 NaCl) had larger fresh and dry weights than plants grown in a standard culture medium (13 mol m-3). However, differing contributions of water and inorganic ions meant that these increases in fresh and dry weights greatly exaggerated the increase in growth, ie organic dry matter production. Enhanced growth in high salt concentrations was evident only after prolonged exposure and was attributable to increased cell size.
