In their natural habitats, different mechanisms may contribute to the tolerance of halophytes to high soil salinity and other abiotic stresses, but their relative contribution and ecological relevance, for a given species, remain largely unknown. We studied the responses to changing environmental conditions of five halophytes (Sarcocornia fruticosa, Inula(More)
The effect of salinity and osmotic stress on protein synthesis was studied in cowpea Rhizobium 4a. Osmotic component of salinity stress has been shown to induce ten proteins in a salt tolerant/osmosensitive cowpea Rhizobium. 4a (groundnut isolate). Of these seven polypeptides were induced only by salt/osmotic stress while two were induced by heat shock. The(More)
Cassia tora L. (Family-Caesalpiniaceae) an Indian wasteland rainy season weed was evaluated for mineral contents in different growth stages of 15, 30, 45 and 60 days using inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectrometry (ICP-OES) and flame photometer. The mineral concentrations were ranged between 0.05-5870 µg g-1 (leaves), 0.21-6929 µg g-1 (stem),(More)
