The effects of salinity and flooding on Phragmites australis
1. Phragmites australis buds with attached rhizomes were planted in PVC tubes and grown under various salinity and flooding conditions in a greenhouse for one growing season. 2. P. australis buds didExpand
The regulation of ecosystem functions by ecotypic variation in the dominant plant: a Spartina alterniflora salt‐marsh case study
Summary 1 Genetic differences among populations of a keystone species may affect ecosystem functional properties. We tested this by planting Spartina alterniflora from different geographical regionsExpand
Root-secreted Allelochemical in the Noxious Weed Phragmites Australis Deploys a Reactive Oxygen Species Response and Microtubule Assembly Disruption to Execute Rhizotoxicity
Phragmites australis is considered the most invasive plant in marsh and wetland communities in the eastern United States. Although allelopathy has been considered as a possible displacing mechanismExpand
Rhizome growth dynamics of native and exotic haplotypes ofPhragmites australis (Common reed)
Phragmites australis (common reed), a clonal grass, has expanded from a minor component of the mid-Atlantic wetlands to a dominant species. It has been suggested that invasive populationsExpand
Stress tolerance in the marsh plant Spartina patens: Impact of NaCl on growth and root plasma membrane lipid composition
The C-4 salt marsh grass, Spartina patens, thrives in the upper portion of the marsh where soil salinities may be equal to coastal seawater. Spartina patens was grown in hydroponic culture in aExpand
The response of plasma membrane lipid composition in callus of the halophyte Spartina patens (Poaceae) to salinity stress.
Callus cultures of the salt marsh grass Spartina patens were examined to determine changes and consistencies in membrane lipid composition in response to salt. Major membrane lipid classes remainedExpand
Aerial production, mortality, and mineral accumulation-export dynamics in Spartina alterniflora and Juncus roemerianus plant stands in a Georgia salt marsh
Biomass and disappearance of dead material were measured in stands of tall creek bank Spartina alterniflora, short high marsh S. alterniflora, and Juncus roemerianus in Georgia, USA at 4-wk intervalsExpand
Tissue culture and long-term regeneration of Phragmites australis (Cav.) Trin. ex Steud.
Phragmites australis tissue cultures were initiated from mature seeds on MS medium supplemented with 1 mgl-1 each of 2,4-D and IAA. Cultures displayed typical embryogenic callus that was compact andExpand
Tissue culture and plant regeneration of Spartina alterniflora: Implications for wetland restoration
A tissue culture and plant regeneration protocol for the salt marsh grass, Spartina alterniflora, has been developed. Callus was efficiently induced on Murashige and Skoog (MS) medium supplementedExpand
