Climate change is expected to result in an increase in the frequency and magnitude of extreme weather events. Alhagi sparsifolia is an important factor for wind prevention and sand fixation in the forelands of the Taklamakan Desert. The effects of high temperature on desert plants remain widely unknown. In this work, chlorophyll a fluorescence induction kinetics were investigated at different time stresses of 5, 20, 40, and 60 min at temperature gradients of 38–44 °C at 2 °C intervals.
