The Biosaline Concept: An Approach to the Utilization of Underexploited Resources
This volume explores the food and fuel production potential of various high-salinity environments, including arid and semiarid land areas, open oceans and bodies of brackish water, and land exposed to irrigation for prolonged periods of time. The development of salt-tolerant crops is discussed, with in-depth consideration given to naturally occurring halphytes, mutagenesis, and genetic engineering.
