Abstract: Experiments with two halophytic and one non-halophytic species indicate that there is an interaction between the effects of temperature and salinity on seed germination. Salicornia europaea, the most salt-tolerant species studied, was stimulated by high temperatures, whereas germination of Medicago sativa and Spergularia marina was inhibited by the highest temperature regime (32 °C).
