Evolutionary patterns of salt tolerance in angiosperms

Moray, Camile

Description

Global food production is threatened by increasing land salinization triggered by climate change, land clearing, and irrigation. Salinity is toxic to most plants, including most crop species. A tremendous research effort has focused on understanding how a rare set of naturally salt tolerant plants, halophytes, are able to cope with soil salinity, as a model for producing salt tolerant crops. One largely unexplored area of research is the evolution of salt...[Show more]
