Abstract

Investigates the effects of salinity on ten natural populations of Iris hexagona in a common garden experiment. Increasing salinity stimulated sexual reproduction at the expense of growth, but near lethal levels of salinity resulted in a sharp decline in seed production. There was no conclusive evidence that populations differed in their response to stress from salinity.
