Abstract

Sporobolus virginicus is shown to occupy low-lying areas on the shores of Lake St. Lucia, where it is subjected to periodic inundation and widely varying salinities. Whilst seeds are not permanently affected by storage under waterlogged saline conditions, young plants are markedly influenced by both inundation and salinity. Older plants are more tolerant of these conditions.
