Sulphide tolerance in coastal halophytes

  title={Sulphide tolerance in coastal halophytes},
  author={Deborah Havill and Ana J Ingold and J F Pearson},
The effect of sulphide on the growth of several species of salt-marsh plants was investigated. Relative growth rates were significantly reduced in two upper-marsh species, Festuca rubra and Atriplex patula, and in the lower-marsh species Puccinellia maritima. However the growth of Salicornia europaea, a species frequently associated with sulphide-containing sediments, was unaffected. In a separate experiment the wide ranging halophyte Aster tripolium, also appeared to be tolerant of sulphide at… CONTINUE READING
