Growth responses of the mangrove Avicennia marina to salinity: development and function of shoot hydraulic systems require saline conditions
BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Halophytic eudicots are characterized by enhanced growth under saline conditions. This study combines physiological and anatomical analyses to identify processes underlying growth responses of the mangrove Avicennia marina to salinities ranging from fresh- to seawater conditions. METHODS: Following pre-exhaustion of cotyledonary reserves under optimal conditions (i.e. 50% seawater), seedlings of A. marina were grown hydroponically in dilutions of seawater amended with...[Show more]
