(2017b) exposed Atriplex nummularia plants to irrigation water from 0 to 40 dS [m.sup.-1] under soil conditions and stated that under high salinity levels, the increase of Fo could mean the possible loss of the reaction centers of photosystem II as well as in oxidative damage (Baker, 2008).
This study also suggests that halophytes such as Atriplex halimus, which has a high fodder quality, can germinate on soil amended with wood chips after intense rain events ([greater than or equal to] 10.9 mm) because 32% Atriplex halimus seed germination was observed at high saline solution (122 mmol NaCl) (Shaygan et al.

This approach has been employed to develop several gender-linked molecular markers in dioecious plants, including Silene latifolia [19], Pistacia vera [20], Cannabis sativa [21], Humulus lupulus [22], Actinidia chinensis [23], Atriplex garrettii [24], Carica papaya [25], Salix viminalis [26], Rumex acetosa [27], Mercurialis annua [28], and Eucommia ulmoides [29].
It was predicted that Suaeda australis and Atriplex semibaccata would have the highest germination success under saline conditions due to their tendency to persist in the most saline soils (in close proximity to the shoreline as well as further away in areas where mineral deposits have accumulated), whilst Rhagodia candolleana is generally less abundant in these areas.
The well-drained soils of the upland areas immediately surrounding the cienega support shrubland dominated by Alkali Sacaton (Sporobolos airoides) and Four Wing Saltbush (Atriplex canescens), and include Honey Mesquite (Prosopis glandulosd), Big Alkali Sacaton (Sporobolos wrightii), and Tobosa (Hilaria muticd).
Molluscicidal effect of the EO Cymbopogon winterianus against Biomphalaria glabrata (RODRIGUES et al., 2013) and the hexane and ethyl acetate extracts from the aerial parts of Atriplex inflata against Galba truncatula (HAMED et al., 2015) have also been described.
Sampled plants included the following forage types and genera: shrubs (Artemisia, Chrysothamnus, Eriogonum, Krascheninnikovia, Salix, Sarcobatus); forbs (Alyssum, Atriplex, Phlox); grasses (Agropyron, Bromus, Oryzopsis, Poa); sedges-rushes (Carex); conifers (Juniperus); and lichens.
