Abstract

Not available – first paragraph follows: A biological system under stress probably uses more energy than the same system in the absence of stress. When a plant is exposed to high levels of salt, extra metabolic energy is likely to be consumed in processes related to osmotic adjustment within the cells. Without this adjustment, the plant would lose water to the surrounding saline environment, dehydrate, and die.
