Abstract

Plant dry matter production in the most highly saline habitats was <50% of that in the less saline sites. In the most saline environment, all plants were dead by the end of July prior to reaching the flowering stage. Increases in soil salinity were significantly correlated with increasing Na+ and Cl- content and more negative water potentials in roots and shoots of A. triangularis. High plant densities also reduced dry weight production in A. triangularis.-Authors
