In the present work, we investigated the effect of salt stress on the distribution of safflower (Carthamus tinctorius L.) antioxidant system in relation to leaf age. The study was carried out under growth chamber conditions using seedlings of three cultivars which were subjected to 0 and 50 mM NaCl for 3 weeks. Leaf growth, water content, lipid(More)
Seedlings of two Tunisian Carthamus tinctorius L. provenances (Kairouan and Tazarka) differing in salt sensitivity were hydroponically grown at 0 and 50 mM NaCl over 21 days. Leaves of Kairouan (salt-sensitive) showed a 48% restriction in their growth at 50 mM NaCl although they accumulated less sodium than those of Tazarka (less salt-sensitive) that(More)
