Nitrogen fertilization enhances water-use efficiency in a saline environment

Martin, Katherine; Bruhn, Dan; Lovelock, Catherine; Feller, Ilka C; Evans, John; Ball, Marilyn


Effects of salinity and nutrients on carbon gain in relation to water use were studied in the grey mangrove, Avicennia marina, growing along a natural salinity gradient in south-eastern Australia. Tall trees characterized areas of seawater salinities (fringe zone) and stunted trees dominated landward hypersaline areas (scrub zone). Trees were fertilized with nitrogen (+N) or phosphorus (+P) or unfertilized. There was no significant effect of +P on shoot growth, whereas +N enhanced canopy...[Show more]
