In inundation areas in rainfed lowland and inland valleys of Guinea as well as other regions in Africa, submergence for a few days to a few weeks with a water depth less than 50 cm occurs in rice cultivation during the rainy season. Young rice seedlings after transplanting are particularly vulnerable to submergence stress. Oryza glaberrima Steud. is well adapted to growth in inundation areas with deepwater conditions in West Africa; however, it is not evident whether it resists short-term…

Contrasting physiological responses by cultivars of Oryza sativa and O. glaberrima to prolonged submergence.
TLDR
Vigorous upward leaf elongation during prolonged submergence is therefore critical for ensuring shoot emergence from water, leaf area extension above the water surface and a subsequent strong increase in shoot biomass.
Genotype-by-environment interaction analysis of rice (Oryza spp.) yield in a floodplain ecosystem in West Africa
TLDR
The results suggested that selection of suitable location with high soil fertility and low risk of submergence is necessary to achieve high yield in a floodplain, and early sowing would be effective high-yielding crop management, which reduced the risk of submerged damage just after sowing and secured sufficient growth duration to achieved high yield.
Submergence Tolerance of Rice Species, Oryza glaberrima Steudel
Oryza glaberrima, an African monocarpic annual rice derived from Oryza barthii, is grown in traditional rice producing wetland areas of West Africa. Oryza sativa, an Asian rice that varies from
Identification of rice genotypes tolerant to submergence at seedling stage in Uganda
TLDR
Results suggested significant differences in the performance of genotypes both in the screen house and under field conditions in which varieties Swarna, IRRI SUPA 3 and KOMBOKA showed approximately 80% and above survival rate with Swarna variety ranking first.
Variation and Phenotypic Evaluation of Intraspecific Oryza glaberrima Lines Resulting from Crossings between Tog5681, Tog5672 and Tog7291
Rice cultivation in Africa suffers from various biotic and abiotic constraints. The African rice, Oryza glaberrima, is a potential source of useful genes for resistance to a range of these stresses.
Complete submergence escape with shoot elongation ability by underwater photosynthesis in African rice, Oryza glaberrima Steud
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the leaf area and shoot biomass of the submerged plants during submergence affects their post-submergence photosynthetic rate and the PSII maximum efficiency to some degree.
Submergence tolerance and Sub1 locus in rice
TLDR
Two strategies adopted by rice plants to cope with flooding stress, major physiological factors affecting submergenceolerance, and physical mapping of Sub1 locus are reviewed, as well as the mechanisms of submergence tolerance, and the prospects of the use of Sub 1 in hybrid rice production are assessed.
Characterizing Submergence Survival Strategy in Rice Via Chlorophyll Fluorescence
TLDR
The shoot‐elongating cultivar was able to maintain the photosynthetic capacity of the newly developed leaf during submergence by prompt reduction of chlorophyll and chlorophyLL fluorescence in the leaf that developed before submergence.

MARKER ASSISTED INTROGRESSION OF Sub1 LOCUS IN RICE
TLDR
The present study aimed at understanding the genetic variation for submergenceolerance in rice and understanding biochemical basis of improved submergence tolerance exhibited by FR13A by identifying the effect of Sub1 locus on tolerance against submergence and recovery after desubmergence.

Physiological and Morphological Mechanisms of Submergence Resistance in African Rice (Oryza glaberrima Steud.)
TLDR
Four Oryza glaberrima lines were characterized with respect to the mechanism of physiological tolerance and morphological avoidance of submerged conditions compared to two O. sativa varieties, suggesting that O. glaberima could be a genetic source for the breeding of deep water varieties.
Physiology and Genetics of Submergence Tolerance in Rice
TLDR
A multidisciplinary approach to improve flooding tolerance in rice and, specifically, tolerance of complete submergence is reviewed to support the view that submergence tolerance of rice seedlings is related to maintenance of energy supply partly through fast rates of alcoholic fermentation which require high levels of carbohydrates.
Physiological basis of submergence tolerance in rainfed lowland rice ecosystem
TLDR
Germplasm improvement for submergence tolerance is likely to be the best option available for alleviation of the submergence damages, other than construction of extensive drainage systems which require a large investment.
Metabolic changes in rice seedlings with different submergence tolerance after desubmergence
TLDR
The results indicate that the accumulated ethylene during submergence adversely affected antioxidant mechanism in intolerant rice cultivars after desubmergence, and ascorbic acid was an important antioxidant in vivo for the recovery of submerged rice seedlings.
The beneficial effect of reduced elongation growth on submergence tolerance of rice
TLDR
The impact of these findings is that in environments where elongation ability is not required, there is a potential to increase submergence tolerance of agriculturally important cultivars by selecting for least elongation, at least during periods of complete submergence.
Physiological and molecular basis of susceptibility and tolerance of rice plants to complete submergence.
TLDR
DNA markers for a major QTL for tolerance are shown to be potentially useful in breeding programmes designed to improve submergence tolerance, and recent progress achieved using linkage mapping to locate quantitative traits loci for tolerance inherited from a submergence-tolerant cultivar FR13A is reviewed.
Comparison of adaptability to flash flood between rice cultivars differing in flash flood tolerance
TLDR
The mechanism of flash flood tolerance was investigated by using a flash flood-intolerant rice cultivar (Oryza sativa), IR42 and a tolerant one, FR13A, and it was assumed that the photosynthetic activity during submergence may be related to flash floodolerance.
Submergence of Rice. I. Growth and Photosynthetic Response to CO2 Enrichment of Floodwater
TLDR
There was little net photosynthetic O2 evolution by detached submerged leaves even at high H CO3- concentrations, which suggests that these rice leaves could utilise only CO2 and not HCO3-.
How plants cope with complete submergence.
TLDR
Responses to avoid the adverse effects of submergence are the central theme in this review, and suggestions made on how to unravel the mechanistic basis of the induced expression of various adaptations that alleviate O(2) shortage underwater.
