The genetic and cytological variability of population of three Salsola species from Asia was investigated, using isozyme electrophoresis and haematoxylin staining. Eight enzyme systems, representing 14-17 loci, were examined: 6PGD, DIA, G6PD, GDH, GOT, MDH, PGM and PGI. Analysis of the chromosome number revealed that the three species have the same number of chromosomes: 2n=18 . Parameters describing genetic diversity indicate a very low level of genetic variation of the studied populations… 
Genetic differentiation of black saxaul, Haloxylon aphyllum (Chenopodiaceae), along a soil salinity gradient in the Kyzylkum Desert
TLDR
Populations of Haloxylon àphyllum in the Kyzylkum Desert have been found to be markedly deficient in heterozygotes at a medium level of genetic diversity, with their genetic diversity reaching a maximum in areas with a moderate salinity level.
Genetic diversity of two annual Salsola species (Chenopodiaceae) among habitat types in desert plant communities
TLDR
The results indicate that genetic diversity rather than population differentiation is affected by the habitat type, and in sub-optimal habitats, the decline in genetic differentiation and increase in gene flow were found for both S. incanescens and S. paulsenii.
Kali komarovii (Amaranthaceae) is a xero-halophyte with facultative NADP-ME subtype of С4 photosynthesis
TLDR
A unique characteristic of K. komarovii is the formation of specific structural-functional subtype C4 photosynthesis related to adaptation to low temperatures, which differs from desert ancient NAD-ME subtype.
Amaranthaceae ) is a xero-halophyte with facultative ADP-ME subtype of C 4 photosynthesis
TLDR
A unique characteristic of K. komarovii is the formation of specific structural-functional subtype C4 photosynthesis related to adaptation to low temperatures, which differs from desert ancient NAD-ME subtype.
Effects of water deficiency on mitochondrion functions and polymorphism of respiratory enzymes in plants
TLDR
It is suggested that properly balanced coadaptive genotype combinations, which produce energetically important enzymes, determine the energy and redox balances during adaptation to drought stress.
Salt and osmotic stress tolerances of the C3–C4 xero-halophyte Bassia sedoides from two populations differ in productivity and genetic polymorphism
TLDR
The morphological, biochemical and genetic characteristics of two Bassia sedoides populations in the Southern Urals were studied and the intraspecific differences have been identified, indicating a deficit of potassium in the soil.
