Abstract

Examines the effects of saline conditions on the emergence and seedling growth of Kosteletzkya virginia (syn. K. pentacarpos). Seedling growth was inhibited with an increase of salinity from 0.3 to 1.2 percent. Salinity levels of 0.9% could still maintain emergence and survival rates to greater than 60 percent.
