Cover for ROS signalling, and antioxidant defence network in halophytes.

Halophytes have evolved a range of adaptations to tolerate disturbances in reactive oxygen species (ROS) homeostasis caused by high salinity alone or in combination with other stresses. Singlet oxygen (1O2), superoxide anion (O2.-), hydroxyl radical (OH.) and hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) are the major...

Cover for Antioxidant defence in halophytes under high salinity.

Understanding the various mechanisms of salt-stress tolerance is important for crop improvement, especially when approximately 20% of agricultural land and 50% of crop land in the world is under salt stress. Stomatal closure due to salt stress reduces the CO2:O2 ratio inside the leaf tissues and...

Cover for Plant responses to chilling temperatures.

Plants are submitted to a chilling stress when exposed to low, non-freezing temperatures. Some are able to cope with this stress and acquire chilling tolerance; in some species, the exposure to this stress will even trigger developmental responses. Other (chilling-sensitive) species will not be...
