What is it about?
In this study, biochemical and phytochemical compounds in the leaves of two wheat cultivars, one hyper-salt tolerant Ae. cylindrica genotype and their amphidiploids, grown under control and saline field conditions, were assessed.

Why is it important?
1- This paper presents one of the first comprehensive analyses of the polyphenols' antioxidant and protective salt stress-induced oxidative stress in plants. 2- The vigorous antioxidant activity and robust accumulation of phenolic compounds in the leaves of tolerant genotypes would imply greater sophistication in genetic diversity for the involvement of defense-oriented strategies to prevent the accumulation of intracellular free radicals generated under salt stress in plants.
