Cover for Salt marsh plants: biological overview and vulnerability to climate change.

Salt marshes are vegetative ecosystems that occupy intertidal zones in estuaries or behind coastal barrier islands where there is some degree of protection from strong wave energy. Physiochemical properties of these marshes are stressful for most angiosperms, as only a few species can tolerate the...

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...
