  • Introduction

    Drought and salinity stresses are serious problems for agriculture products in the arid and semi-arid areas. Introducing plants (cultivar, genotype and populations with specific physiological and morphological mechanisms) tolerant to salinity and drought in these areas can be effective in moderating the detrimental effects of drought and salinity stresses. Understanding how plants respond to drought, salt and co-occurring stresses can play a major role in stabilizing crop performance under drought and saline conditions and in the protection of natural vegetation. Adequate management techniques and plant genetic breeding are the tools to improve resource use efficiency (including water) by plants. This special issue could be an effective step in the introduction of efficient mechanisms of tolerant plants to drought saline conditions in agronomical and breeding programs.

    Aims and Scope:
    Introduction of tolerant plants to drought and salinity.
    Introduction of plants with higher water use efficiency.
    Identify tolerant plants to drought and salinity with higher added value.
    Understanding tolerant mechanisms in plants.
