Glycophytes

Glycophytes

 

plants growing in nonsaline soils and bodies of fresh water. Mesophytes, hygrophytes and hydrophytes, and some xerophytes are glycophytes. Nearly all crop plants are glycophytes. Some glycophytes are able to adapt to salinization of the soil; however, salinization always lowers their productivity. The resistance of glycophytes to salts can be increased by saline hardening prior to sowing.

Seckin et al [30]; Ellouzi et al [31] Srivastava et al[32] reported that the salt loving species have effective anti-oxidative machineries than glycophytes.
The glycophytes exposed to saline condition, show that near about 50% of total osmotic potential is contributed by the sugars (Ashraf and Harris 2004).
On the other hand, restricted uptake of Na+ and maintenance of K+ level with enhanced growth under NaCl stress in LiCl adapted line could be the result of enhanced capacity of membranes for ionic discrimination like salt tolerance in glycophytes observed in NaCl tolerant cell lines of citrus, tobacco Medicago sativa, rice and M.
The main objective of this study was to assess soil microbial biomass and the structure of the microbial community in the soil around the roots of two glycophytes, Medicago sativa L.
