Article Topic(s): Disturbance, Phenology, Plant growth regulator, Stress
Research Setting(s): Wetland
Species Referenced: Iris hexagona (Dixie iris),
AbstractInvestigates the influence of salinity on Iris hexagona and an iris leafminer (Cerodontha iridiphora). Salinity stress increased jasmonic acid (JA) and decreased salicylic acid (SA), two important signal phytohormones. Leafminer performance also decreased under the salinity treatment.
