Title Germination of Atriplex halimus Linnaeus, 1753 (Caryophyllales Chenopodiaceae) in North West Algeria
Source Biodiversity Journal
Abstract In arid and semi-arid ambients, soil salinity is a constraint for the development of plants and a threat for balanced diet. Current data in the Mediterranean basin report up to 16 million hectares of salt soil, 3.2 million of which in Algeria. Germination in vitro of seeds of Atriplex halimus Linnaeus, 1753 (Caryophyllales Chenopodiaceae) in both synthetic media (nutrient agar, and Mueller Hinton) reached rates of 80% at 25 degrees C and 50% at 5 degrees C. The taxon shows a good resistance to salt; because of high salinity treatments (500 to 600 meq/l), there is a delay in germination but not complete inhibition of the process.
