Agricultural soils becoming saline have been rising over the last decades, because of the overuse of fertilizers or because of watering with saline solutions, such as reclaimed waters. At this point, understanding how plants respond to salinity stress is critical in order to develop crop plants tolerant to salt stress. In this Special Issue, manuscripts dealing with how plants respond to salinity at physiological and molecular levels are welcome in any kind of plant species. Omics manuscripts are encouraged, but the Issue is not limited to such manuscripts. Moreover, manuscripts dealing with the use of alternative practices to overcome salt stress, like the use of soil with beneficial microorganisms, are also encouraged. Manuscripts should address novel aspects of plant salinity tolerance and advance our knowledge on that subject.
