Salinity, temperature and light affect seed germination of Haloxylon salicornicum, a common perennial shrub of the Arabian deserts



Salinity, temperature and light affect seed germination of Haloxylon salicornicum, a common perennial shrub of the Arabian deserts



Seed Science And Technology: 3, 679-688



<i>Haloxylon salicornicum</i> (Moq.) Bunge ex Boiss. has been considered as one of the most promising species for reseeding deteriorating desert range vegetation, and for sand dune fixation in the Arabian deserts. However, plant communities dominated by this species have become seriously degraded due to overgrazing.
