Title THE EFFECT OF SALINITY ON THE GERMINATION OF SOME WESTERN AUSTRALIAN EUCALYPTUS AND MELALEUCA-SPP
Source Seed Science and Technology
Abstract Eleven Eucalyptus and 10 Melaleuca species from Western Australia were tested for the effect of salinity on seed germination. An increase in NaCl concentration resulted in a decrease in the percentage germination and slower germination. E. occidentalis and M. cardiophylla were the most tolerant species with LD50 values of 176 and 148 mM NaCl, respectively. Salt tolerance was generally low compared to the results of known salt tolerant species. The most salt-sensitive species were E. redunca and M. subtrigona. The seed from a population of M. thyoides growing in saline soil was more salt tolerant than the seed from three other M. thyoides populations growing on non-saline soil.
