Contents

Tolerance to salinity in plants - new concepts for old problems; response of plants to salinity in interaction with other abiotic and biotic factors; perception of salt signals by higher plants; uptake and role of ions in salt tolerance; cell permeability under salt stress; salinity and its effects on growth, yield and some physiological processes of crop plants; nitrogen metabolism in plants under salt stress; carbon metabolism in salt stress; polyamines and salt stress; a plant biochemical regulator improves salt tolerance; flowering and sexual reproduction under salt stress; breeding for salt resistance in plants; genetics of salt tolerance in higher plants; wild germplasm for salt tolerance in plants; the potential of plant tissue culture and related techniques for the improvement of salt tolerance in higher plants; salt responsive proteins/genes in crop plants; molecular biology of salt stress; cultivation of salt tolerant conventional and halophytic plants under saline environments; improvement of salt tolerance in some native pulse crops.
