Compatible solutes as biochemical markers

We have developed a set of markers using endogenous levels measurements of compatible solutes. The use of these markers to assess salinity and drought tolerance in Poplar plants allowed characterizing the physiological status of the plants during the stress exposure. Combined with the other physiological and molecular markers, this set of markers was proved to be a reliable test to evaluate the stress level in trees. These markers were also proven to be helpful understanding the abiotic stress response mechanisms in trees.
