Increasing soil salinization creates harsh conditions for plant cultivation and contributes to a decline in arable areas worldwide. Most crops have high sensitivity to salt stress, which impairs their growth and productivity. The root is the first organ that perceives the changes in soil conditions and Root System Architecture (RSA) can be shaped by the environment. Dorota Kawa focuses on the modulation of RSA by two environmental stresses and dissecting the molecular base of these responses, including the integration of two stresses.
