Table 3 Carbon isotope discriminaion (Δ13C, ‰), C content (% DW), total C accumulation (g plant− 1), nitrogen isotope composition (δ15N, ‰) and total N accumulation (g plant− 1) in hot pepper leaves as affected by varying levels of irrigation water salinity (ECiw, dS m− 1) and two leaching fractions (LF). The values for each treatment measured at the end of the experiment were the averages of four replications

From: An investigation on possible effect of leaching fractions physiological responses of hot pepper plants to irrigation water salinity
