Aims Most of the land area of Saudi Arabia is either arid or hyper-arid. In the past decades, many efforts have been exerted to increase the green cover in Saudi Arabia, the most recent of which is the Saudi Green Initiative (S.G.I.), launched in 2021. S.G.I.’s main objectives are to increase the green land surface area and decrease carbon emissions. In this paper, the role of dryland agroforestry in mitigating the effects of climate change was reviewed, and its contribution to fulfilling S.G.I. was discussed. Methodology Previously published literature, scholarly research articles, and conference proceeding papers, on agroforestry systems (A.F.S), carbon sequestration and nutrient dynamics under A.F.S over the past 34 years were critically reviewed, examined, and analysed to find various applications of AFS for climate change mitigation and carbon sinks with focus on arid land. Results Forests are a vital source for climate change mitigation and adaptation and play a vital role as carbon sinks. A.F.S, eco-friendly and environmentally viable land use and management, provide immense potential to sequester carbon (C). A.F.S. is a reliable tool for increasing C sequestration. As a result of the worth granted to non-timber products, the application of A.F.S. could likewise reduce C emissions to the air by reducing the odds of concrete cutting of trees. Moreover, tree components are a source of C for the soil by means of root and leave decomposition. Conclusion In the perspective of the high threat facing humanity paused the climate variability and climate change, many nations and countries have taken various measures to tackle it which included protecting …

First year growth and survival is very crucial for successful planting in arid lands. Seed priming proved to enhance seedling performance under various growth conditions. In this study, seed samples of Acacia tortilis were primed in different osmo-conditioning and hormonal priming solutions, sown in the nursery, and then the produced seedlings were transplanted into the open field under different levels of watering frequencies. The results obtained revealed significant effects of irrigation and seed priming treatments and their interaction in all growth traits measured, indicating that priming treatments respond differently under different irrigation. The interactive effects produced better growth performance of treated seedlings under all watering treatments. However, treating the seedlings with PEG osmo-priming at the rate of 10% followed by hormonal priming at the rates of 200 and 300 ppm produced better values across all irrigation treatments, with PEG10 ranked better in most treatments. While the trend in growth rate showed that during the early growth stages all the treatments obtained close results and were started to separate with increasing time. In regards to irrigation treatment, irrigating the seedlings twice a week and once every week revealed no significant difference in all growth traits, indicating no need to irrigate twice a week. The analysis of antioxidant compounds (total phenols and total flavonoids) showed similar trend with high values in primed seedlings. In the same way, PEG 10% produced higher phenols and flavonoids across all watering treatments. In another hand, with in the irrigation treatment both phenols and flavonoids were …

Wheat is a globally important crop used as a main staple food in various countries of the world. The current study was conducted with the objective to evaluate the effect of a high temperature (HT) on osmolytes (starch, sucrose, total soluble sugars, total soluble proteins and proline), physiological parameters (Chl-a, Chl-b, photosynthesis rate, transpiration rate and stomatal conductance), antioxidant enzymes (superoxide dismutase, catalase and peroxidase) and agronomic traits (flag leaf area, spike length, and thousand grain weight) during the grain filling and anthesis stages of wheat cultivars (Fakhr-e-Bhakar, Raj-3765, Jimai-22 and Bayraktar-2000) collected from different regions of the world. Separate experiments for both stages were conducted in a glasshouse and treated with two different temperature regimes, i.e., optimum (OT) (24 °C day; 14 °C night) and high temperature (HT) (32 °C day; 22 °C night) in RCBD for two weeks. The data for osmolytes, antioxidant enzymes and physiological contents were collected at days 3, 5, 7, 9 and 13 after the start of plant stress, while the agronomic traits were collected at maturity. The data obtained were subjected to a statistical analysis using the statistix8.1 and R-program. HT stress significantly reduced all the traits except for the membrane damage, transpiration rate, proline and total soluble sugars, whose values increased considerably in the genotype Bayraktar-2000. However, under both regimes of temperature Fakhr-e-Bhakkar showed a high tolerance against HT stress, as revealed by physiological, biochemical and agronomic evaluations. Moreover, correlation, PCA and heat map analyses …

Profiling and importance of underutilized neglected species of hyper arid climate of Saudi Arabia (Retama raetam-Retem): A review

Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) is the largest country in Arab Peninsula. However, most of its land is classified as arid or hyper arid with rare vegetation cover. Retama raetam (Retem) is found in the drier parts along the Northern Western region of KSA. Retem is well known as drought tolerant species with wide range of traditional medicinal uses. In order to validate the traditional uses, recently many studies were conducted regarding phytochemical analysis and pharmacological activities. However, very few information about the importance of this species and its profile are available. The aim of this review is to highlight the updated information on the profile and values of this species. R. Raetam is a true arid land plant species with very deep root system, assimilating green branches and small leaves that are drop very quickly to conserve water loss. In addition to that phytochemical profiling of the species revealed many compounds of high pharmacological values such as flavonoids, alkaloids and pinitols. As the result different parts of this plant exhibited medicinal properties such as antioxidant, antifungal, antibacterial, antiviral, antihypertensive, diuretic, antiseptic, hypoglycaemic, anti-inflammatory and body weight lowering. This review reflects the importance of including this species in the priority list in KSA as potential multiuses for degraded land rehabilitation.
