Plant salt tolerance ~ water and Na+ homeostasis upon salinity stress

Shinshu University, Tokida, Ueda, Nagano 386-8567, Japan

Plants suffer a reduction in water absorption and excessive invasion of toxic ions such as Na+ upon salinity stress, which cause serious damages in growth and productivity. In this seminar, a part of water and Na+ transport mechanisms in crops in response to saline environments will be presented with the reference to important transport systems for plant salt tolerance, for which the genes are yet to be identified.
