Salinity gradient is one of plant diversity determinants in land and water ecosystems. Species that grow in saline habitats, salt marshes, salt deserts, mangroves, or near the sea shores are termed halophytes. Currently, salinity is one of the major stressors of plants, and salt-tolerant species usually have to cope with several other abiotic constraints occurring simultaneously in their natural environment. The important problem worldwide, even in semi-arid areas, is not only drought, but also the successive salinization of arable land. Therefore, researchers are becoming increasingly interested in a group of xerohalophytes that display an excellent ability to grow in salinized environments characterized by low water availability. Some of these species have been applied to fixation of sand dunes or may be used for phytoremediation schemes of saline agricultural areas.
This Special Issue welcomes recent articles related to all the above mentioned areas. Multidisciplinary comparative studies are also welcome. Particular emphasis is also placed on high-value Products obtained as a result of halophyte cultivation. We think that the readers of the MDPI journal Plants will benefit from every viewpoint presented by this wide scientific community.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Plants is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
