1. Saline conditions
Soils or waters that are high in salt content, that is, more than 0.5 parts per thousand (=0.05% salinity). Usually sodium chloride (NaCl) is the predominant salt, but some areas have high concentrations of sulfates, carbonates, and bicarbonates, as well. Habitats are commonly subdivided on the basis of total salt content.
