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).
species from southern Portugal as sources of bioactive molecules.
POXs are involved in many functions in plant cells such as ROS generation and regulation, [H.sub.2][O.sub.2] level regulation, oxidation of various substrates and also involved in loosening of the cross-linking of cell wall compounds  The present induced increase in both APX and POX was comparable with some halophytes

and serpentinophytes are a good evidence for that.
In some halophytes
, a mechanism could be considered the endophytic association between plant and rhizobacteria able to improve the plant growth in abiotic stress conditions (PGPR) (7).
The world's irrigated acreage could be increased by about 50 percent by reusing saline water and salinized crop fields for halophytes
