Abstract

This paper reviews a range of studies under controlled conditions (glasshouse and growth cabinet) focusing on the effects of the interaction between waterlogging (hypoxia) and salinity on the ion relations, growth and survival of higher plants. The literature shows that in general, waterlogging under saline conditions causes increased Na+ and Cl− concentrations in the shoot, due initially to increased rates of transport. These increased concentrations in the shoots have adverse effects on plant growth and survival. It is argued that the interaction between waterlogging and salinity has major implications for saltland management, and for the selection and breeding of plants adapted to saltland.
