Recent water level declines of a saline and alkaline lake (Mono Lake, California, USA) have exposed large areas of former lake bottom substrates that have been sparsely colonized by the halophytic shrub, Sarcobatus vermiculatus. To increase understanding of the interaction of salt and nutrient relations in halophytes we investigated spatial and seasonal patterns of leaf elemental composition and growth for Sarcobatus along an extreme salinity gradient using four sites varying in age since… CONTINUE READING
