Virtual special issue on Salt Tolerance of Plants 
Compiled by Jean-Claude Kader

Salinity is one of the major issues in agriculture. Understanding the tolerance of plants to salt stress will thus contribute to the selection of salt resistant crops. The Journal Environmental and Experimental Botany (EEB) aims to develop knowledge about the mechanisms of resistance of plants to environmental factors, including salinity.

EEB has published numerous papers in recent years devoted to the study of salt responses of plants with the objective of providing significant advances in this domain. This virtual special issue presents some papers related to this field of research with the hope of encouraging discussion among experts in this field and of attracting novel and exciting papers to EEB in the future.

Other EEB virtual special issues:

Light responses in plants

Temperature responses in plants

 

EEB recently published special issues:

Responses, Acclimations and Adaptations of Northern Plants to Global Change
Volume 72, Issue 3, Pages 349-464 (October 2011)

Metal(loid) tolerance in plants and lichens
Volume 72, Issue 1, Pages 1-106 (August 2011)
