Although previous studies have found that germination of halophytes
can occur in a variety of salinities, many halophytic species favour conditions where NaCl concentration is less than that of seawater (600 mM) and require optimal temperatures for successful germination (Khan and Ungar 1984).
Molecular cloning and characterization of a vacuolar H+ pyrophosphatase gene, SSVP, from the halophyte
Suaeda salsa and its overexpression increases salt and drought tolerance of arabidopsis.

or salt tolerant plants collected from Kutch, Gujarat were the Abuliton indicum from different region Kalodungar, Bhachav and Nakhtrana, Senra incana, Sida sp.
The world's irrigated acreage could be increased by about 50 percent by reusing saline water and salinized crop fields for halophytes

in saline areas of Indian Thar Desert.
exilis has also been found in association with other Aizooaceae (Otto 2014) and other halophytes
, but almost always in anthropogenic or perianthropic environments.
These drones are best suited to combat in Anbar's deep wadis and the halophyte

Photosynthesis, photosystem II efficiency and the xantophyll II cycle in the salt-adapted halophyte
Kochia scoparia has attracted attention in a wide range of research in diverse regions (Lopez-Aguilar et al, 2003a; Kafi et al, 2010).
The laughable and lenient sentences handed out by the Australian courts in the Halophyte
case to individuals for providing more than $1 million to the LTTE and securing explosives, (The resulting bomb explosion at the Colombo Central Bank killed over 1,400 civilians and maimed thousands) clearly demonstrate the duality of the "anti-terrorism" policies.
With high energy prices and concern over global warming, the halophyte
(salt-tolerant plant) is now in demand for its other properties.
