Ecophysiological studies of plant species in wet saline habitats have been one-sided in the past, emphasizing sodium chloride only. More emphasis should be given to anaerobiosis, to mechanical factors, to the effects of a surplus of other nutrients in seawater and coastal ecosystems and their metabolic impact as well as to aspects of nutrient (re)allocation. Research should incorporate theoretical models on plant strategies maximizing yield, minimizing risk. At the population level, a new… CONTINUE READING
