Has anyone heard of halophytic plants removing salt from soils? The application would be for oilfied brine contaminated sites.

Thanx

MSN environmental web news has an article about a plant called Tamarisk or Salt Cedar that extracts the salt from the ground and then deposits it on it's leaf tips. It doesn't advertise it as a salt remediation plant but it could be worth checking into.

Please note, Tamarisk or Salt Cedar is an exotic species and there is evidence in the arid interior of the western U.S. that it can be very invasive.Mike Johnston wrote:-------------------------------MSN environmental web news has an article about a plant called Tamarisk or Salt Cedar that extracts the salt from the ground and then deposits it on it's leaf tips.
