Baohua Gong, Jianbo Zhu, Hongying Zhao, Yuxing Zhang


Psammophyte can resist drought through different mechanism, such as small and thin leaves, leaves covered with wax,
well developed roots. As typical psammophyte, stipagrosits pennata’ root form entwined structure with sand, therefore
shows excellent drought tolerance. This paper describes the mechanism of the adaptation of stipagrosits pennata to
desert from different aspects such as morphology, anatomical structure and stress simulation.
