Abstract: Tolerance of gametophytes of Acrostichum aureum to NaCl and dehydration was investigated under controlled conditions following the changes in chlorophyll fluorescence parameters (F(v)/F(m), q(p), q(N)). Salt tolerance was increased by growing gametophytes in low concentrations of NaCl. However, such treatment could not increase the tolerance of gametophytes to dehydration. Under water stress, a decrease in photochemical quenching (q(p)) was accompanied by an increase in non-photochemical quenching (q(N)). Under salt stress, q(p) also decreased, but q(N) did not change significantly in salt-hardened gametophytes.
