Effects of temperature and light on salinity tolerance during germination in two desert glycophytic
grasses, Lasiurus scindicus and Panicum turgidum.
As more emphasis is placed on selection and breeding of halophytic plants, it will be necessary to develop better classification and assessment criteria that address the inherent differences between glycophytic and halophytic growth responses (Subbarao and Johansen, 1994).
Adalayd is a seashore paspalum that demonstrates a typically glycophytic response for shoot and total growth with decreasing growth as salinity increases (Fig.
In cytosol mostly cell maintain low Na+ and high K+ concentration and it is compulsory requirement for survival of glycophytic
plants under stress which includes the majority crop species.
In summary, a tremendous range in salinity tolerance existed within this important grass subfamily, from glycophytic
species employ different strategies to withstand salinity stress.
Generally, salinity stress inhibits K+ uptake in many glycophytic
plants (Gouia et al.
