Evaluation of the capacity of three halophytes to desalinize their rhizosphere as grown on saline soils under nonleaching conditions.
In the sabkha of Soliman (N-E Tunisia), soil samples of the upper 20 cm were taken during the driest period of the year (July–August) from inside and outside tufts of two perennial halophytes:Expand
