SummaryEvidence was given that the freezing tolerance of Halimione portulacoides, a wintergreen halophyte, can be explained by protection of sensitive cellular membranes in vivo. Experiments were done with cloned cuttings of a plant from the German North Sea coast. One series received no NaCl (O-plants) the other 3% NaCl (NaCl-plants) in the nutrient solution. During the annual course Na+ and Cl- of the O-plant leaves remained on a nearly constant low level. In the leaves of the NaCl-plants Na… CONTINUE READING
