Abstract

Tests the direct and indirect effects of salinity on seed germination of Iris hexagona. Direct exposure to salinity reduced seed germination and produced seedlings with reduced mass than freshwater treatments. Seeds produced by plants growing in high salinity germinated earlier than seeds from lower salinity effects.
