Adaptive traits for salinity tolerance in coastal rice landraces and halophytic rice wild relative
Soil salinization is identified as a major cause of land degradation, rendering land unsuitable for crop cultivation. Domestication of crops over the past 10,000 years has resulted in the loss of ancestral traits. Crop Wild Relatives (CWRs) can be important sources of salinity tolerance.
