Key words: Against salinity, biochemical parameters, soluble sugars, soil salinity, Nitraria schoberi.
The present investigation was made to study the effect of different levels of soil salinity on biochemical constituents and photosynthetic pigments of the seedlings of Nitraria schobery. Pigment components (Chl a, Crt) and Chl (a+b) content decreased up to MOS level. Beyond this level the contents decreased marginally. Organic compounds such as soluble sugars, amino acids and proline content increased with the increasing of soil salinity. Highest amount of pigment components, total soluble sugars and protein contents in nonsaline condition (control) indicates that N. schobery plants can grow well even in nonsaline soils, but the metabolic pathways of proline, total soluble sugars and free amino acids appeared that the species can be considered as a miohalophyte species.
