Halophytes have potential as biomass crops to directly sequester up to 0.7 Gt C, similar to tree plantations, or they can play an indirect role in absorbing C from the atmosphere by providing food, fodder and energy crops from a new land base. To the extent new cropland can be developed… CONTINUE READING
