Mechanisms of Cl(-) transport contributing to salt tolerance.
Mechanisms of Cl(-) transport in plants are poorly understood, despite the importance of minimizing Cl(-) toxicity for salt tolerance. This review summarizes Cl(-) transport processes in plants thatExpand

Measuring soluble ion concentrations (Na(+), K(+), Cl(-)) in salt-treated plants.
The control of Na(+) and Cl(-) uptake from soils, and the partitioning of these ions within plants, is an essential component of salinity tolerance. Genetic variation in the ability of roots toExpand

EST-derived SSR markers from defined regions of the wheat genome to identify Lophopyrum elongatum specific loci.
Lophopyrum elongatum, a close relative of wheat, provides a source of novel genes for wheat improvement. Molecular markers were developed to monitor the introgression of L. elongatum chromosomeExpand

Growth and ion relations in response to combined salinity and waterlogging in the perennial forage legumes Lotus corniculatus and Lotus tenuis
Lotus tenuis (Wadst. & Kit.) is a perennial legume widely grown for pasture in the flood-prone and salt affected Pampa region of Argentina. The physiology of salt and waterlogging tolerance in L.Expand

Lotus tenuis tolerates combined salinity and waterlogging: maintaining O2 transport to roots and expression of an NHX1-like gene contribute to regulation of Na+ transport.
Salinity and waterlogging interact to reduce growth for most crop and pasture species. The combination of these stresses often cause a large increase in the rate of Na(+) and Cl(-) transport toExpand

Variation in salinity tolerance, early shoot mass and shoot ion concentrations within Lotus tenuis: towards a perennial pasture legume for saline land
Perennial legumes are needed for productive pastures in saline areas. We evaluated 40 lines of Lotus tenuis for tolerance to salinity at both germination and vegetative growth stages. Salt toleranceExpand

Aerenchymatous phellem in hypocotyl and roots enables O2 transport in Melilotus siculus.
• Aerenchymatous phellem (secondary aerenchyma) has rarely been studied in roots. Its formation and role in internal aeration were evaluated for Melilotus siculus, an annual legume of wet salineExpand

Comparisons of annual pasture legumes in growth, ion regulation and root porosity demonstrate that Melilotus siculus has exceptional tolerance to combinations of salinity and waterlogging
Annual pasture legumes with high tolerance of combined salinity and waterlogging are needed for saline areas in many rain-fed agricultural regions. Melilotus siculus is an annual legume from salineExpand

Waterlogging tolerance is associated with root porosity in barley (Hordeum vulgare L.)
Tolerance to waterlogging is an important breeding objective for barley (Hordeum vulgare L.); however, it is a complex quantitative trait. It is difficult to screen large numbers of lines in theExpand

Root aeration via aerenchymatous phellem: three-dimensional micro-imaging and radial O2 profiles in Melilotus siculus.
• Internal root aeration enables waterlogging-tolerant species to grow in anoxic soil. Secondary aerenchyma, in the form of aerenchymatous phellem, is of importance to root aeration in someExpand
