Abstract

A pot experiment was conducted to study the effects of spraying with 5 different concentrations (0, 50, 100, 150, 200 μmol·L-1) of exogenous melatonin (MT) on photosynthetic characteristics of C. bursa-pastoris seedlings under 50 mmol·L-1 NaCl stress. The results showed that spraying exogenous MT significantly increased the net photosynthetic rate (Pn), transpiration rate (Tr) and stomatal conductance (GS) of C. bursa-pastoris seedlings and all increased at first then decreased. The changes trend of the intercellular CO2 concentration (Ci) in the C. bursa-pastoris seedlings were contrary to that of Pn, Tr and Gs, and decreased with the increase of MT concentration. Therefore, spraying exogenous MT can improve the photosynthetic capacity of C. bursa-pastoris seedlings, which will help to improve the adaptability of C. bursa-pastoris, and the best concentration is 150 μmol·L-1.
