coastal plants are able to confer heat and salt tolerance to crop plants such as cucurbits or tomato, respectively ( Rodriguez et al., 2008 ). The ability of endophytes to confer stress tolerance to both monocots and eudicots suggests that the genetic

-alkali land. Therefore, it is necessary to study the salt tolerance mechanisms of plants and find methods to improve their salt tolerance ( Hu et al., 2018 ; Zhang et al., 2017 ). Coreopsis tinctoria Nutt. is an annual herb of the genus Coreopsis in

salinity tolerance is a key approach to identifying the most saline tolerant lines for existing and new crops. Salt tolerant genotypes of existing crops, such as wheat ( Munns et al., 2012 ) and strawberries ( F. chiloensis f. patagonica ) ( Garriga et al

( Simini and Leone, 1986 ; Wu et al., 2001 ). Thus, although salt spray studies ( Deeter, 2001 ; Wu et al., 2001 ) may be valid for a general comparison of species tolerance to salinity, the results may not be readily extrapolated to soil-based systems in

study of each level of response is the best way to correctly place the pieces to understand the whole picture of salt tolerance. However, as plant cells become specialized during ontogeny, it is clear that the adaptive mechanisms to tolerate salt stress
