Summary

Large areas of Western Australia are naturally saline and host a high diversity of endemic halophytic plants. Halosarcia is the genus containing the largest number of halophytic species, which have potential for revegetation use but are poorly known.

This project addressed both taxonomic issues and the ecophysiology of selected species for salt and water-logging tolerance, to assess suitability for rehabilitation of varying sites.
