Up-dating eHALOPH

All the records from James Aronson's original list in HALOPH together with those in the list compiled by Menzel and Lieth (2003) have now been evaluated for inclusion in eHALOPH. We have added nearly 300 species, but not added or deleted nearly 1300 species as we have been rigorous in requiring published evidence for salt tolerance before including a species in eHALOPH. In revising the list of salt-tolerant plants, we comprehensively reviewed more than 2500 species. A list of plants that might be salt tolerant can be obtained from t.j.flowers@sussex.ac.uk. We have added to ‘Germination’,  'Microbial interactions' and 'Mycorrhizal status’ and’ Bioremediation’ across all records. New references on salt-tolerant plants discovered by searching the Web of Science for the term 'Halophy*' are added each month.

Initially (from 2014 to 2018) we utilised 'The Plant List' [http://www.theplantlist.org/] to check species nomenclature and some cases names of species were 'unresolved'; where this was the case this may be noted in the 'Miscellaneous notes', a part of each record in eHALOPH. From November 2018 names have been checked against Plants of the World Online [http://www.plantsoftheworldonline.org/].

We have not systematically added all synonyms and users of eHALOPH should check Plants of the World Online or The International Plants Names Index (IPNI)  if concerned about the taxonomy of a halophyte that does not appear in eHALOPH.
