The effect of salt stress on nitrogen fixation, in relation to sucrose transport towards nodules and other sink organs and the potential of sucrose breakdown by nodules, was investigated in two lines of Medicago ciliaris. Under salt stress conditions, the two lines showed a decrease of total biomass production, but TNC 1.8 was less affected by salt than TNC(More)
The consequences of direct iron deficiency and iron resupply were evaluated during development stages of two Tunisian chickpea varieties (INRAT88 and Chetoui) cultivated in continuously aerated solution with or without 20 muM Fe. The chlorosis score was estimated during culture. Growth parameters, chlorophyll concentration, acidification capacity and Fe(More)
The limits for loading soils with Tunisian urban compost for cultivating Medicago sativa were determined in a 6-month experiment in a greenhouse. Mature municipal solid waste compost (MSWC) from Tunis city was applied to clay and sandy soils from cultivated fields at rates equivalent to 40, 80, 120tha(-1). In the absence of MSWC, the shoot biomass (dry(More)
The aim of this study was to identify the relationship between the adaptive processes of Suaeda fruticosa for Pi acquisition and the physic-chemical and biological characteristics of two soil types under moderate and high saline conditions. Four treatments were established in pots: namely SS100, SS600, CS100 and CS600 where SS stood for sandy soil and CS(More)
Hordeum maritimum (Poacea) is a facultative halophyte potentially useful for forage production in saline zones. Here, we assessed whether moderate NaCl-salinity can modify the plant response to phosphorus (P) shortage. Plants were cultivated for 55 days under low or sufficient P supply (5 or 60 μmol plant−1 week−1 KH2PO4, respectively), with or without 100(More)
The halophyte Crithmum maritimum thrives in cracks of calcareous rocks or cliffs at seashores, a situation which associates limited phosphorus availability and high salinity. In order to understand the common patterns of colonization and zonation of this species, seedlings were cultivated for 34 d in inert sandy soil irrigated with a nutrient solution(More)
Suaeda fruticosa is a perennial "includer" halophyte devoid of glands or trichomes with a strong ability of accumulating and sequestrating Na(+) and Cl(-). We were interested in determining whether leaf cuticle salt excretion could be involved as a further mechanism in salt response of this species after long-term treatment with high salinity levels.(More)
