Abstract

Salinity is a common phenomenon and one of the fundamental features of arid and semiarid zones. Basically, there is a close correlation between soil aridity and salinity. Several operational concepts are briefly discussed: solonchaks, solonetzs, solods, saline soils, alkalized soils in relation to natural vegetation of halophytes.
