Macroevolutionary patterns of salt tolerance in angiosperms

Bromham, L.

Description

BACKGROUND: Halophytes are rare, with only 0·25% of angiosperm species able to complete their life cycle in saline conditions. This could be interpreted as evidence that salt tolerance is difficult to evolve. However, consideration of the phylogenetic distribution of halophytes paints a different picture: salt tolerance has evolved independently in many different lineages, and halophytes are widely distributed across angiosperm families. In this Viewpoint, I will consider what phylogenetic...[Show more]
