This paper was written in collaboration with J Gibbs, a colleague of long standing, with major contributions by DW Turner, School of Agriculture and Environment, The University of Western Australia, and BJ Atwell, Department of Biological Sciences, Macquarie University. H. Greenway acknowledges the inspirational guidance by the late R.N. Robertson who showed him how to teach and how to do research, and the many discussions on the first section of the paper with Paul Sullivan at Notre Dame University. Hank Greenway undertook research and taught in the Faculty of Agriculture at The University of Western Australia for over 35 years from 1968. Hank’s contributions to research and leadership in the fields of salt tolerance, waterlogging and flooding tolerance are highlighted by Colmer and Munns (2003).

Hank dedicates this work ‘to Trish who for years tolerated my preoccupation with teaching and research’.
