The arable areas suitable for high yielding elite crops are getting scarce due to decreasing availability of fresh water and increasing soil salinisation. In order to breed new crops with a higher salinity tolerance, insight is needed into the reaction of plants to salt and why some plants are more sensitive to salt than others. Magdalena Julkowska investigates the effects of salt stress on Arabidopsis thaliana, which is regularly used as a model plant.
