Influence of salinity on leaf structure and water relations in the mangrove, Avicennia marina (Forssk.) Vierh.
Physiological and anatomical analyses were used to identify processes underlying growth responses of the grey mangrove, Avicennia marina subsp. australasica, to salinities ranging from fresh to seawater conditions. Avicennia marina was revealed as an obligate halophyte, as seedlings failed to grow in 0 to 5% seawater, whereas maximal growth occurred in 50 to 75% seawater. Relative growth rates were affected by changes in leaf area ratios (LAR) and net...[Show more]
