Salt tolerance is evolutionarily labile in a diverse set of angiosperm families

Moray, Camile; Hua, Xia; Bromham, Lindell


BACKGROUND: Salt tolerance in plants is rare, yet it is found across a diverse set of taxonomic groups. This suggests that, although salt tolerance often involves a set of complex traits, it has evolved many times independently in different angiosperm lineages. However, the pattern of evolution of salt tolerance can vary dramatically between families. A recent phylogenetic study of the Chenopodiaceae (goosefoot family) concluded that salt tolerance has a conserved evolutionary pattern, being...[Show more]
