- ... The mechanism(s) importing salt tolerance to plants remains unresolved. Although cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.) is classified as salt-tolerant plant, variation in salt tolerance has been observed among different cultivars. The purpose of this study was to determine if more salt-tolerant cultivars contain higher constitutive or inducible levels of antioxidants than more salt-sensitive cultivars. Gr ...
