    Salinity is a major abiotic stress that adversely affects plant growth and development. Canola (Brassica napus L.) is an important oilseed crop in the world, and its yield decreases drastically with increasing salinity. To date, little is known about the molecular mechanisms underlying its salt stress response and tolerance. This study combines physiological assays with comparative proteomics to understand how B. napus plants respond to salt stress. The changes in relative water content, electrical conductance, stomata conductance, intercellular CO2 concentration, transpiration rate, photosynthesis rate, water usage efficiency, respiration rate, chlorophyll fluorescence, antioxidant enzyme activities, soluble sugar, proline and betaine in B. napus plants under different NaCl concentrations were analyzed.
