Effects of waterlogging on the growth and NaCl uptake by vascular plants under saline conditions

Barrett-Lennard, E.G. (1986) Effects of waterlogging on the growth and NaCl uptake by vascular plants under saline conditions. Reclamation &​ Revegetation Research, 24 . pp. 477-483.

Abstract

With vascular plants grown under saline conditions, waterlogging may affect the regulation of Na+ and Cl- uptake and the growth of shoots and roots. Examples are given of non-halophytes in which waterlogging enhances the net uptake of Na+ and Cl- to the shoots, thereby causing shoot senescence and adverse effects on growth.
