Abstract

Bulliform cells are structural features found especially on species included in Poaceae, Cyperaceae, and Juncaceae. They are involved in rolling and unrolling leaves under severe drought and salinity conditions. According to ecological spectra of halophytes, the presence of bulliform cells is being discussed in relation to a new described group of salt tolerant plants—amphibious halophytes. These cells seem to explain why several species that are usually hygro-halophytes can also experience drought stress during summer and may be successful in overcoming it.
