Different clones of the wetland grass Phragmites australis differ in their morphology and physiology, and hence in their ability to cope with environmental stress. We analysed the responses of 15 P. australis clones with dis-specific ion accumulation were studied in order to assess if traits associated with salinity tolerance can be related to the genetic(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Phragmites australis is a wetland grass with high genetic variability, augmented by its cosmopolitan distribution, clonal growth form and large variation in chromosome numbers. Different ploidy levels and ecotypes differ in morphology and ecophysiological traits, and may possess different levels of phenotypic variation. The aim of this(More)
In the Mississippi River Delta, the common wetland grass, Phragmites australis, displays high genetic diversity, as several genetically distinct populations are co-occurring. Differences in salinity tolerance may be an important factor determining these populations’ distribution in the delta. Our study investigated the salt tolerance of four genotypes(More)
Interactive effects of elevated temperature and CO 2 on two phylogeographically distinct clones of common reed (Phragmites australis). AoB PLANTS 5: pls051; Abstract The aboveground growth, physiological and biochemical parameters of two clones of the cosmopolitan wetland grass Phragmites australis, grown at four treatment combinations of temperature and CO(More)
