Abstract

The conjugative development of male and female structures and reproductive processes of Haloxylon aphyllum—a desert xerohalophyte woody species from Chenopodiaceae, along the soil salinity gradient has been investigated. Increase in soil salinity level and available soil moisture were considered the critical factors during ontogenesis of female generative organs, determining seed production and seed quality of H. aphyllum.
