NaCl effects on proline metabolism in rice (Oryza sativa) seedlings
Salt-stress effects on osmotic adjustment, ion and proline concentrations as well as proline metabolizing enzyme activities were studied in two rice (Oryza sativa L.) cultivars differing in salinityExpand

NaCl-induced senescence in leaves of rice (Oryza sativa L) cultivars differing in salinity resistance
The influence of NaCl on senescence-related parameters (protein and chlorophyll concentrations, membrane permeability and chlorophyll fluorescence) was investigated in young and old leaves of fiveExpand

Effect of salt and osmotic stresses on germination in durum wheat (Triticum durum Desf.)
In order to determine the relative importance of ionic toxicity versus the osmotic component of salt stress on germination in durum wheat (Triticum durum Desf.), seeds of three cultivars differing inExpand

The use of the electrolyte leakage method for assessing cell membrane stability as a water stress tolerance test in durum wheat
This work was carried out to adapt the electrolyte leakage technique todurum wheat and then to evaluate its relevance in the assessment of the cellmembrane stability as a mechanism of water stressExpand

Response to copper excess in Arabidopsis thaliana: Impact on the root system architecture, hormone distribution, lignin accumulation and mineral profile.
Growth, in particular reorganization of the root system architecture, mineral homeostasis and root hormone distribution were studied in Arabidopsis thaliana upon copper excess. Five-week-oldExpand

Changes in plant response to NaCl during development of rice (Oryza sativa L.) varieties differing in salinity resistance
The effects of NaCl stress on growth and development of rice (Oryza sativa L.) were studied and compared in varieties of various origins. During the vegetative stage, tall indica landraces (NonaExpand

Hormonal changes in relation to biomass partitioning and shoot growth impairment in salinized tomato (Solanum lycopersicum L.) plants
Following exposure to salinity, the root/shoot ratio is increased (an important adaptive response) due to the rapid inhibition of shoot growth (which limits plant productivity) while root growth isExpand

Heavy metal accumulation by the halophyte species Mediterranean saltbush.
To identify Cd- and Zn-accumulating plants exhibiting a high growth rate, seeds from the halophyte species Mediterranean saltbush (Atriplex halimus L.) were collected on a heavy-metal-contaminatedExpand

Salt stress effects on roots and leaves of Atriplex halimus L. and their corresponding callus cultures
Salt stress effects on growth, osmotic adjustment, mineral and organic contents and soluble peroxidase activities were determined in roots and leaves of Atriplex halimus and their correspondingExpand

NaCl alleviates polyethylene glycol-induced water stress in the halophyte species Atriplex halimus L.
Atriplex halimus L. is a C4 xero-halophyte species well adapted to salt and drought conditions. To collect information on the physiological impact of low salt levels on their water-stress resistance,Expand
