There are number of methods applied to assess accessions in genebanks ranging from scoring morphological traits to biochemical and molecular analyses. In most cases, the methods are complementary to each other and they aim at different results. Characterization data including biochemical methods...

Unexplored biodiversity exists within crop species and their close relatives, which could be used to improve germplasm for salt-affected land. However, screening large germplasm collections for salt tolerance is difficult, and more specific and feasible selection techniques are required. Knowledge...
