    Seeds of the halophyte Crithmum maritimum L. were exposed to salt stress and chemical pretreatments in order to improve germination. Seeds submitted to salt stress did not germinate but they recovered rapidly upon transfer to distilled water, recovery being higher after a low salinity...

    The salinity induced inhibition of seeds germination remains not clear at physiological levels. The aims of this study is to investigate the effect of salt on germination, embryo growth, superoxide anion radical (O2) and the respiratory activity (TTC reduction) in Crithmum maritimum L. seeds....

    Saline habitats contain various salt types that differently affect seed germination and subsequent seedling establishment. Most studies on the germination process have been carried out using NaCl, which may limit the accuracy of the conclusions drawn, especially regarding the plant behaviour...

    Crithmum maritimum is a perennial Apiaceae growing naturally in rocky coasts. The oil extracted from its seeds seems to be convenient for human consumption. Physiological aspects of its salt response were studied in a laboratory with NaCl concentration ranging from 0 to 300 mM. The results show...

    Halophytes thrive in a wide range of habitats and climates, which may largely determine the seed mineral content, and hence influence both their germination capacity and their subsequent establishment. In order to assess this hypothesis, we performed a comparative study on three Tunisian...

    Here, the reversibility effects of salinity on Crithmum maritimum L. (Apiaceae), a perennial local oilseed halophyte that was recently suggested as a cash crop for biosaline agriculture, were checked by monitoring a number of parameters in pre-stressed plants and then, replaced in normal...

    Salt tolerance of halophytes relies on several strategies, among them, the production of species-specific secondary metabolites. Chemically, a broad variety of secondary compounds of economic interest is present in halophytes. Several of these secondary compounds are restricted to halophytic...

    Eryngium maritimum is a coastal plant of the Apiaceae family. This species is threatened in several countries where it reaches the northern limits of its distribution area. Existing populations in the Baltic Region and Scandinavia are potentially affected by the low efficiency of its generative...

    Aims: Responses to salt stress of two Gypsophila species that share territory, but with different ecological optima and distribution ranges, were analysed. G. struthium is a regionally dominant Iberian endemic gypsophyte, whereas G. tomentosa is a narrow endemic reported as halophyte. The...
