Abstract

This study deals with the reactions of Sporobolus cryptandrus to various concentrations of Utah's most common alkali salts. Its purpose is to determine the effects of various concentrations of sodium chloride, sodium carbonate, and sodium sulphate on the growth and fruiting of Sporobolus cryptandrus, and to determine to what extent, if any, various levels of calcium exert a protective influence against the toxicity of these three salts. In addition to the experimental work a field of study was conducted for the purpose of determining the concentrations of total salts found in soils supporting a good growth of Sporobolus cryptandrus.
