Abstract

Researches the effects of population source on the salinity tolerance of Iris hexagona. Although colonies were genetically distinct, there was no difference in salinity tolerance among populations from brackish versus freshwater colonies. The greatest sexual reproduction occurred in intermediate levels of salinity.
