Salinity stress is one of the most important environmental abiotic factors that regulate plant developed and growth and limit plant production and synthesis of secondary metabolites. Plants can respond and adapt to salinity stress by several physiological, biochemical responses. Feverfew (Tanacetum parthenium) is a valuable medicinal plant from Asteraceae family with various pharmacological and therapeutic properties. To evaluate the effect salinity stress on the morphological and biochemical responses of feverfew medicinal plant, a factorial experiment based on a completely randomized design with three replicates under greenhouse conditions was conducted in Shiraz University, Iran. Feverfew seedlings were fed with half Hoagland solution. Salinity was induced by NaCl and CaCl2 (2:1) at 30, 60, 90, 120, 150 and 180 mM concentrations. Plant height, leaf length, shoot number, dry mass percentage, sugar, proline, and ascorbic peroxidase were measured. The results showed that by increasing salinity levels, plant height and leaf length, reduced, while increased dry mass percentage, sugar, proline, and ascorbic peroxidase.
