AbstractResearches the effects of salinity and temperature on the germination and growth of eight maternal families of Sagittaria latifolia. Salinity decreased germination and growth in all maternal families, but the extent of the decrease varied by family. Additionally, salinity decreased germination most under high temperatures but decreased growth the most under low temperatures. Sagittaria latifolia can germinate but not grow well under low salinity conditions.
