    About This Project

    Ronin Institute

    Salt is dangerous to most plants, as it quickly disrupts their ionic homeostasis and their physiology. Most studies on plant adaptation to soil salinisation focus on the root, the part of the plant directly exposed to the salt. However, my recent recent work shows that application of salt to the roots induce long-distance electrical signals that quickly travel to the leaves via the phloem. These data open new questions regarding the role of systemic electrical signals in salt adaptation.
