By Jianfeng Zhang

The newest advances in study on coastal saline soil rehabilitation and usage in response to forestry procedure are mentioned. The forestry strategy is emphasised instead of actual or engineering measures to ameliorate saline soils, that's major for coastal environmental development and land assets growth. The monograph is an invaluable reference for researchers utilizing concepts of ecology, forestry and agronomy.
Prof. Jianfeng Zhang works on the Institute of Subtropical Forestry, chinese language Academy of Forestry. He has been engaged on afforestation in saline soils for over 20 years.

28 4 Causes and Countermeasures of Urban Salinization Fig. 2 Trees planted in Yantai, Shandong (Photograph taken by Xu Jingwei) Hence, improved irrigation and drainage systems are required to control the rise of the water table and environmental salt accumulation. For example, land-water could be irrigated with saltwater and freshwater alternately, surface mulch could be used, or surface soils could be furrowed after rain. Crops and grasses possess different tolerance levels for salt in different water and salt environments.

It should be noted that the degree to which sodicity affects any given soil is influenced by factors such as soil mineralogy, pH, texture, and organic content. Within the framework of salt-affected soil improvement, particular attention is paid to the salinity tolerance of crop plants according to the specific stage of improvement (Zhang 2003). , Lycium chinense, and Amorpha fruticosa, are planted. In the later stages, when soils become more fertile and have lower salt content, it is possible to grow crops more sensitive to salinity, such as rice, soybean, and corn (Crouch and Honeyman 1986; Song 2001).
