Reviews

From the reviews:

"Several scientists in Europe have developed research projects for the sustainable utilisation of halophytes. … Most of their work was based on the collection of papers from an international meeting in A1 Ain/UAE. This volume presents useful examples of research from that meeting and the presentation of new research topics. … will serve as a guide for future efforts to develop the common utilisation of cashcrop halophytes. This volume will be of great value for all scientists and others interested in R and D projects … ." (Food Trade Review, Vol. 75, 2005)
