Abstract
Arundo donax L, a perennial grass originated from the circum-Mediterranean-Asian area, has received much attention from researchers. On the one hand, it has been considered an invasive species in riparian ecosystems; on the other hand, it has been proposed as an energy crop for biomass production in marginal lands. From both fields of interest, a key issue is the species propagation. In the frame of the EU OPTIMA project (www.optimafp7.eu) a specific task was proposed to evaluate the potential of Arundo to be grown for biomass production under salinity stress conditions. In the present work, we investigated the response of stem cuttings of A.donax to NaCl concentration in order to assess the propagation capacity of 10 clones of different origin.
