Effect of water stress on growth, osmotic adjustment, cell wall elasticity and water-use efficiency in Spartina alterniflora
Abstract In the northern spring–summer season of 2004–2005, vegetative propagated plants of Spartina alterniflora were grown under control and water stress conditions on the Mediterranean sea shoreExpand

Effect of sodium chloride on the response of the halophyte species Sesuvium portulacastrum grown in mannitol-induced water stress
Sesuvium portulacastrum is a halophytic species well adapted to salinity and drought. In order to evaluate the physiological impact of salt on water deficit-induced stress response, we cultivatedExpand

Comparative study of the effects of mannitol and PEG osmotic stress on growth and solute accumulation in Sesuvium portulacastrum
Abstract Responses to osmotic stress were studied in Sesuvium portulacastrum , a halophyte potentially usable for saline soil stabilization and covering. Cuttings were multiplicated and cultivated inExpand

Physiological response of halophytes to multiple stresses.
As halophytes grow vigorously in saline soils, they serve as extraordinary resources for the identification and development of new crop systems. Understanding the mechanisms of tolerance ofExpand

Understanding the population genetic structure of coastal species (Cakile maritima): seed dispersal and the role of sea currents in determining population structure.
The nature and extent of long-distance seed dispersal are currently poorly understood, largely due to the inherent difficulty in detecting such a phenomenon. Genetic methods provide one of the fewExpand

Biomass production, photosynthesis, and leaf water relations of Spartina alterniflora under moderate water stress
The perennial smooth cordgrass, Spartina alterniflora, has been successfully introduced in salty ecosystems for revegetation or agricultural use. However, it remains unclear whether it can beExpand

Ammonium nutrition in the halophyte Spartina alterniflora under salt stress: evidence for a priming effect of ammonium?
Background and aimsThe effects of salt stress on the salt marsh halophyte Spartina alterniflora have been well documented. However, plant responses to combined salinity and ammonium toxicity and theExpand

Photosynthesis and photosystem 2 efficiency of two salt-adapted halophytic seashore Cakile maritima ecotypes
The effects of salinity (0–400 mM NaCl, marked S0, S100, S200, and S400) on growth, photosynthesis, photosystem 2 (PS2) efficiency, ion relations, and pigment contents were studied in two seashoreExpand

Are changes in membrane lipids and fatty acid composition related to salt‐stress resistance in wild and cultivated barley?
The possibility to use membrane-lipid measurements to screen barley genotypes for salt resistance was studied. The results showed that wild barley (Hordeum maritimum) displayed a typical halophyticExpand
