Title Seed Germination and Seedling Growth of Mangrove Excoecaria agallocha Under Different Salinities
Source Xiamen Daxue Xuebao (Ziran Kexue Ban)
Abstract Salinity is one of the most important factors influencing the distribution of mangrove plant Excoecaria agallocha. Under different salinities, rooting rate, germination index,seedling establishment rate of E. agallocha seed were investigated and also the situation of stem height, base diameter, leaf number, maximum leaf area of E. agallocha seedlings. Results showed that under the low salinity 5, seed germination was similar to that under salinity 0, significantly higher than those under the middle salinity, 15. Under high salinities (25 and 35) seed germination was very low. Only half of the seeds can root, but can't grow. and nearly all the roots were burnt by the high salt. The seedlings growth showed nearly the same condition. Under high salinities(25 and 35) the seedlings were successively dead in the first 2 months.
