Abstract: Field investigations were carried out to determine growth and survival rates of Salicornia europaea L. in a saline environment at Rittman, Ohio. Collected data indicated that from 62% to 100% of the seedlings within the 'A saline zones investigated did not survive to maturity. Seedling mortality was statistically correlated at P<0.01 to rising soil salinity stress during late spring and summer. Plant growth was minimal between April and June, increasing sharply during late summer and fall.
