Abstract/Contents:The growth of six rapid-cycling lines of Brassica species, B. napus, B. campestris, B. nigra, B. juncea, B. oleracea and B. carinata was inhibited by seawater salinity. Based on the change in dry matter reduction relative to the control at varying concentrations of salts (4, 8 and 12 dS m-1), the relative salt tolerance of these species was evaluated. B. napus and B. carinata were the most tolerant and most sensitive species, respectively, while the other four species were moderately tolerant. The influence of seawater on the concentrations of 12 elements including macronutrients and micronutrients in the shoots of these Brassica plants was characterized to determine the relationship between nutritional disturbance and relative salt tolerance. It was found that seawater salinity had a significant effect on the concentrations of Ca, Mg, K, Cl, Na, and total N in the shoots of these plants but only the change in Ca concentration was significantly related to the relative salt tolerance of these six rapid-cycling Brassica species according to a rank analysis of the data. This finding indicates that Ca may play a regulatory role in the responses of Brassica species to saline conditions.
