Barbour (1978) determined from competition experiments carried out in the laboratory that the halophyte Jaumea carnosa did not compete successfully with the glycophyte Lolium perenne in freshwater conditions, but it was not inhibited by competition with the latter in the high-salinity treatment.
Moreover, it has been well documented that salt treatment of plants induces the activities of the plasma membrane proton pumps both in Halophytes and Glycophytes.
Over the years comparison of halophytes and glycophytes remains a hot topic in plant physiology.
There are many reports of increased expression of the antiporter genes by salt stress in the glycophytes, A.

This is reflected in the flora, which to a large extent is composed of glycophytes (i.
Most grain crops and vegetables are glycophytes and are highly susceptible to soil salinity even when the soil [EC.
While glycophytes generally rely on ion exclusion at the root endodermis, Tamarix is thought to survive in saline soils by maintaining high uptake of ions in conjunction with salt extrusion, cellular compartmentation, and utilization for osmoregulation (Greenway and Munns 1980).
