  • Reaumuria vermiculata (L.), a perennial dwarf shrub in the family of Tamaricaceae, is a salt-secreting xero-halophyte found widely in arid areas of Tunisia. In the present study, physiological attributes of R. vermiculata were investigated under salt stress. Four-month-old plants were subjected to various salinity levels (0, 100, 200, 300, 400 or 600 mM NaCl) for 30 days under greenhouse conditions. Results showed that plants grew optimally when treated with standard nutrient solution without… CONTINUE READING
