The following article from Plant Biology, “Growth, ion homeostasis, photosynthesis and photosystem II efficiency of an obligate halophyte, Salicornia brachiata, under increasing salinity (p)” by A. K. Parida, C. M. Hari Kishore & B. Jha, published online on 1 April 2010 (DOI: 10.1111/j.1438-8677.2010.00336.x) in Wiley InterScience (, has been retracted by agreement between the authors, the journal Editor-in-Chief, Heinz Rennenberg and Blackwell Publishing Ltd.

The retraction has been agreed due to concern about overlap with the article “Relationship between the photosynthetic activity and the performance of Cakile maritima after long-term salt treatment” by Ahmed Debez, Hans-Werner Koyro, Claude Grignon, Chedly Abdelly, Bernhard Huchzermeyer published in Physiologia Plantarum (2008) vol. 133, 373-385.
