Clues to trees’ salt tolerance found in native habitat, leaf traits

Canyon maple was compared with bigleaf maple and eucalyptus to investigate whether salt tolerance can be inferred from observable cues based on woody species’ native habitat and leaf traits. Results showed the potential to infer a degree of salt tolerance from either native habitat or known drought tolerance. Outcomes suggested canyon maple can be used in urban landscapes in the United States Intermountain West irrigated with reclaimed water with moderate or lower electrical conductivity. —> Read More Here
