FP23228Introducing the halophyte Salicornia europaea to investigate combined impact of salt and tidal submergence conditions
The extremophile Salicornia europaea is characterised for its tolerance to high salt and flooding conditions. Here, we studied the effect of multiple and simultaneous environmental perturbations of salinity and waterlogging on its growth. Responses to salt and hypoxia reciprocally affected each other when applied simultaneously, demonstrating the significance to investigate signalling-crosstalk between environmental stress reactions in tolerant species.
