The seedlings of twenty eight annual and perennial desert plants belonging to fifteen families were raised under controlled growth conditions and subjected to a range of tests. The water use efficiency, photosynthesis, extreme temperatures and drought tolerance were monitored. The results were discussed for their ecological significance as a basic information to applied research. Seedlings which were more tolerant to extreme high and low temperatures and drought were more capable of controlling… CONTINUE READING
