Not available – first paragraph follows:
Salinity and its potential influence on plant productivity can be managed either by physically manipulating the environment in which the plant grows or by biologically manipulating the plant to reduce the harmful effects of excess salt. The concept of biological manipulation is based on the observation that salt tolerance appears to be genetically controlled and that plants vary widely in their sensitivity to high levels of salt.
