Title COMPARATIVE SEEDLING SALT TOLERANCE OF SEVERAL EUCALYPTUS AND MELALEUCA-SPP FROM WESTERN AUSTRALIA
Source Australian Forest Research
Abstract Seedlings of six species of Eucalyptus [E. halophila, E. occidentalis, E. leptocalyx, E. goniantha, E. uncinata, and E. angulosa] and six species of Melaleuca [M. thyoides, M. calycina, M. aff. calycina, M. subtrigona, M. cardiophylla, and M. cymbifolia] were screened for their relative salt-tolerance ratings in two separate glasshouse experiments. The salinity of the irrigation solution was increased at regular intervals and plant height and seedling mortality were recorded. Salt tolerance, as measured by seedling survival, was highest for M. cymbifolia, while E. halophila was the most salt-tolerant Eucalyptus species. The seedlings with the highest tolerance were those raised from seeds collected from trees growing near the edge of salt lakes.
