Willd. in Romania’s flora -- An ecological overview of halophytes from the Aralkum area -- An ecological overview of halophytes from inland areas in Central Europe -- A tentative list of Romanian halophytes: taxonomy, distribution, ecology -- Behavior of the invasive alien flora subjected to saline influence on coastal Mediterranean habitats -- Competition between halophytes and invasive species: Dittrichia viscosa and Inula crithmoides, a study case from the Valencian salt marshes -- Structure and conservation strategies of the littoral salt marshes vegetation at the East of Spain -- Endangered halophytes and its conservation: Lessons from Eastern Spain -- Relationships between communities of halophytes and soil in different areas of southeastern Spain -- Spartina genus in the Valencian litoral (Spain) -- Management and ecosystem services of halophytic vegetation -- Diversity of halophytes at the plant species and community level in Greece -- An overview on halophytes of Sudan and Horn of Africa -- Diversity and conservation of halophilous vegetation in W-Romania protected areas.Summary: PRELIMINARY This handbook covers all important topics related to halophyte biology: definition, classification, morphology, anatomy, ultrastructure, physiology and ecophysiology, photosynthesis, biochemistry, genetics and genomics, saline environments and the rhizosphere, ecology, mangroves, biosaline agriculture and potential use of halophytes. Each topic is explained in detail and examined from various angles in order to offer a comprehensive view on this fascinating group of plants. The idea and the vision of this handbook are born from a need for having a treatise – in its encyclopaedic sense – that gathers all relevant knowledge about halophytes, which may play a key-role in an anxious scenarios regarding salinity threat in agriculture and food crisis.PPN: PPN: 1726028763Package identifier: Produktsigel: ZDB-2-SBL | ZDB-2-SLR | ZDB-2-SXRB | ZDB-2-SEB
