About this book

PRELIMINARY

This handbook covers all important topics related to halophyte biology: definition, classification, morphology, anatomy, ultrastructure, physiology and ecophysiology, photosynthesis, biochemistry, genetics and genomics, saline environments and the rhizosphere, ecology, mangroves, biosaline agriculture and potential use of halophytes. Each topic is explained in detail and examined from various angles in order to offer a comprehensive view on this fascinating group of plants. The idea and the vision of this handbook are born from a need for having a treatise – in its encyclopaedic sense – that gathers all relevant knowledge about halophytes, which may play a key-role in an anxious scenarios regarding salinity threat in agriculture and food crisis.

He was subsequently a postdoctoral fellow in the field of halophyte ecophysiology at the same university, as well as an invited researcher at the Polytechnic University of Valencia, Spain. His primary research interests are in the ecology, anatomy and physiology of halophytes. He has published 7 books and over 65 peer-reviewed papers on halophytes. In 2016, he was awarded the Romanian Academy’s “Emil Racoviță” prize for the book - Halophytes: An Integrative Anatomical Study, published with Springer in 2014.
