This work dealt with the different types of halophytes; obligate, facultative, and habitat-indifferent halophytes with the indication of the main angiosperm families containing each category. In the same time it summarizes the most dominant halophyte species and their belonging families and their degree of adaptation to salt habitats. These genera and species, which are more than five hundred, were belonging to more than 70 Angiosperm families. These species can be further classified according…

Photosynthetic pathways inChenopodiaceae from Africa, Asia and Europe with their ecological, phytogeographical and taxonomical importance

Close taxonomic relationships between photosynthetic pathways and infrageneric classification in genera with both types of C3 and C4, like Atriplex andSuaeda are found.

Studies on halophytes from Iran and Afghanistan. II * Ecology of halophytes along salt gradients

The halophytic communities of Iran and Afghanistan are rich in species compared with similar communities in S Europe or in N America, and the main phytochemical types which develop are partly correlated with conventional taxonomic units.

Phylogenetic analysis of tribe Salsoleae (Chenopodiaceae) based on ribosomal ITS sequences: implications for the evolution of photosynthesis types.

Reconstructed phylogeny of representative species of tribe Salsoleae of subfamily Salsoloideae of angiosperm family Chenopodiaceae indicates separate NAD-ME and NADP-ME lineages and suggests two reversions to C(3) photosynthesis.

Species, types, distribution, and economic potential of halophytes in China

According to a survey conducted from 1995 to 2004 in the eight regions with salinized soils, China contains 587 halophytes representing 242 genera and 71 families: apart from three species of ferns,

Halophytes: Biology and Economic Potentials

Several potential crops among local halophytes have been identified and reported by Institute of Sustainable Halophyte Utilization, University of Karachi, however, further research is required to shape these candidate plants as proper crop.

A contribution to the halophytic vegetation and flora of Iran

An account is given of the halophytic vegetation and flora of Iran. With respect to field studies the halophytic vegetation of Iran is classified into 10 vegetational units. Also, a total of 165

Plant salt tolerance: adaptations in halophytes.

The evolution of salt tolerance in halophytes, their life-history traits and progress in understanding the molecular, biochemical and physiological mechanisms contributing to salt tolerance are summarized.

A SUMMARY of the recent literature on the halophytes appeared in the Botanical Review for 1941 (Uphof), but it would seem that there is still need for a critical discussion of the more important

A critical review on halophytes: Salt tolerant plants

The different mechanisms which are present in salt tolerant plants against high salt concentrations of the soil are dealt with by combining information from different research papers to make a comprehensive account of halophytes.

Salsola arbusculiformis, a C3–C4Intermediate in Salsoleae (Chenopodiaceae)

Measurements of its CO2 compensation point and CO2 response of photosynthesis show S. arbusculiformis functions as an intermediate species with reduced levels of photorespiration, and analysis of photosynthetic enzymes (activity and immunolocalization) and 14 CO2 labelling of initial fixation products suggests minimal operation of a C4 cycle.
