  Algae are an enormous biological group, forming 50% of photosynthetic organisms. In addition to having chlorophyll for the absorption of light photons, algae are rich in red, orange, and yellow carotenoids, which mainly protect cells against harmful radiation and free radicals. Moreover, these organisms ...  Read More

  There is an imbalance between increase rate in demand for agricultural products and the growth rate of agricultural production. Much of this production deficit is attributed to abiotic stresses. These stresses reduce the yield of crops by more than 50%. Obviously, it worth studying any idea which may ...  Read More

Plant breeding for abiotic & biotic stresses
The effect of salinity stress on Na+, K+ concentration, Na+/K+ ratio, electrolyte leakage and HKT expression profile in roots of Aeluropus littoralis

Volume 3, Issue 2 , December 2015, , Pages 1-10

  Among abiotic stresses, salinity has been increasing over the time for many reasons like using chemical fertilizers, global warming and rising sea levels. Under salinity stress, the loss of water availability, toxicity of Na+ and ion imbalance directly reduces carbon fixation and biomass production in ...  Read More
