    Salinity: Environment - Plants - Molecules by André Läuchli, Ulrich Lüttge

    By André Läuchli, Ulrich Lüttge

    This booklet addresses the responses of vegetation to salinity. even though salinity is a standard environmental issue for marine organisms, for almost all of land crops excessive soil salinity is an environmental constraint that limits development, productiveness, and general plant services. Salinity is very frequent in arid/semiarid climates the place crop construction is dependent upon irrigation. A complete method is taken during this e-book. After discussing salinity as an environmental soil issue and its international effect on ecosystems, plant responses are coated from the whole-plant point via metabolic adjustments to the underlying molecular and genetic mechanisms. unlike different books during this topic region, which specialise in convinced facets of plant responses to salinity or are convention complaints, this can be the single entire new publication in this topic, written by way of specialists within the box. The meant point of readership is graduate scholars and complicated researchers drawn to environmental biology and particularly within the sector of mechanisms of environment-plant interactions.
