This contrasts with the accumulation of salts within the root-zone of Atriplex
species (Barrett-Lennard and Malcolm 1999), which raises questions about the long-term sustainability of systems that are based on Atriplex

They also plan to cultivate the desert saltbush Atriplex

is not the only plant that needs higher mineral content to grow.
The subsurface drainage water from the trees is then used to irrigate the atriplex
Saline land that would be indicated by salt-lovers like Atriplex
confertifolia (of the saltbush group) or Kochia would support crops only in very rainy years.
species growing elsewhere in the world are not mycorrhizal, other studies have shown.
The pattern-ground chenopod shrubland complexes in Australia are predominantly vegetated by the plant genus Atriplex
if the slope is 1-5% (Macdonald et al.
The tested plants (Figure 02) are fodder bushes belonging to three halophytes species of Atriplex
Another impact of periodic droughts is the small number of shrubs present in this environment, which includes Atriplex
canesens (saltbush), Chrysothamnus nauseosus (rabbit bush), Opuntia polyanthemos (plains prickly pear cactus) , and Yucca glauca (soapweed yucca).
For example, in their study of plant water stress, Freeman and McArthur (1982) found no difference in the water stress of male and female Atriplex
canescens (a desert shrub) in June when they flower, but that females became progressively more stressed as they matured their fruits in July and August.
