Differential responses of the mangrove Avicennia marina to salinity and abscisic acid

Reef, Ruth; Schmitz, Nele; Rogers, Britt A; Ball, Marilyn; Lovelock, Catherine


Salinisation of the soil can cause plant water deficits, ion and nutrient imbalances and toxic reactions. The halophyte, Avicennia marina (Forssk.) Vierh., is a mangrove that tolerates a wide range of soil salinities. In order to understand how salinity affects plant growth and functioning and how salinity responses are influenced by the water deficit signalling hormone abscisic acid (ABA) we grew A. marina seedlings under two non-growth limiting salinities: 60% seawater and 90% seawater and...[Show more]
