Abstract:
Suaeda maritima is a widely occurring annual halophyte that experiences the fluctuating salinity and hypoxia of tidal cycles on salt-marshes. During dormancy, seeds survive in saline, hypoxic mud to germinate when spring-time temperatures reach about 15 °C. Plants of Suaeda maritima have wide salinity tolerance but little work has been published regarding interlinked waterlogging. The effects of saline waterlogging on growth and ion accumulation were investigated in tanks in a glasshouse where tidal flow was simulated and in aerated and hypoxic saline culture solution in a controlled environment cabinet.
