Biosaline Agriculture and High Salinity Tolerance by Chedly Abdelly, Münir Öztürk, Muhammad Ashraf, Claude

By Chedly Abdelly, Münir Öztürk, Muhammad Ashraf, Claude Grignon

A significant probability to agricultural productiveness world wide is surely as a result of environments with annoying components together with drought, salinity, waterlogging, severe temperatures, non-optimal degrees of mineral foodstuff and so on. in keeping with contributions provided on the overseas convention on Biosaline Agriculture and excessive Salinity Tolerance in November 2006 in Gammarth, Tunisia, this ebook experiences the present country of information in biosaline agriculture and excessive salinity tolerance in crops. It regularly specializes in the biotic method of economically make the most of the stress-prone parts through becoming resistant plants.

This quantity includes 3 sections: physiology and biochemistry, ecology, and molecular biology. hence, a scientific technique has been followed to discover plant responses to numerous ecological components at physiological and molecular levels.

It is of curiosity to scholars, researchers and pros in plant body structure, molecular biology, biotechnology, agriculture, soil technological know-how, and environmental biology.

Does not at all solve the problem of plants growing under salt stress. The transgenic plants would be capable of higher transport rates than the wild type, but the capacity of salt sequestration in the external compartment will be unchanged (unless the external compartment is increased by a concomitant effect). Such a double response can occur, for instance, if a halophyte can increase growth rate (thus building extra vacuolar space) under stress. Such observations have been made with Cakile maritima, a plant that tends to develop succulence under salt stress [59].

Stomatal limitations as well as by improving activity of rubisco. Likewise, Yang and Lu [21] reported that 10 mM GB applied to the roots enhanced salt tolerance of wheat plants by improving photosynthesis through stomatal conductance. In another study with maize, Yang and Lu [30] reported that GB improved photosystem-II (PS-II) efficiency in maize plants. This view was further supported by the beneficial effect that foliar application of GB had on photosynthetic pigments (chlorophyll ‘a’ and ‘b’) in the salt-stressed plants of maize (Fig.

It is known, for example, that growth habit and plant morphology play a pivotal role in tolerating of high concentration of salt [6, 7]. Relationships among vigor, water usage and salt absorption are also apparent from previous research. More recent work provided evidence that, in both sensitive and tolerant rootstocks, chloride uptake and accumulation, and therefore salt tolerance, are strongly related to water usage [7]. , Cleopatra mandarine), are partially due to its higher ability for water uptake and transport, and greater rates of leaf transpiration in both normal and saline conditions [6, 7].
