Utilization of high salinity tolerant plants and saline water by desert animals



Utilization of high salinity tolerant plants and saline water by desert animals



Towards the rational use of high salinity tolerant plants Volume 1: Deliberations about high salinity tolerant plants and ecosystems Proceedings of the first ASWAS conference December 8-15, 1990, Al Ain, United Arab Emirates: 443-447



The main source of drinking water for animals in semi-arid areas contains comparatively high concentrations of salts with sodium chloride as the main constituent. Under these conditions, an important fodder is saltbush (Atriplex spp.) which contains up to 10% sodium chloride. When sheep drank water containing 1.0% NaCl they suffered no ill effects, 1.5% was detrimental to some and 2% was detrimental to all sheep.
