of water transpired by the plant is directly proportional to the water available for its development. Greater water availability from T1 favored stomatal aperture and transpiration, a process essential to the carbon assimilation, which facilitated the

possible role of ABA in regulating ion homeostasis under salinity. ABA regulates K + fluxes, K + channels, and membrane potential in roots cells; it also is well known to regulate ion transport in guard cells, which regulate stomatal aperture ( Roberts

leaves is negatively correlated with stomatal aperture ( Mahdieh and Mostajeran, 2009 ; Walton, 1980 ), thus limiting water lost as a result of transpiration ( Franks and Farquhar, 2001 ; Jiang and Hartung, 2008 ). Once a drought-stressed plant is

( Martinez et al., 2003 ). Potassium is believed to be involved in maintaining turgor of guard cells and facilitating stomatal aperture ( Taiz and Zeiger, 1998 ). Recovery of g Sws/ww and thus recovery of Pn ws/ww in the second stage ( Fig. 3 ) could be
