Halophytes may show cell pressure very much higher

Question:

Halophytes may show cell pressure very much higher than atmospheric pressure. Explain how this can happen?

Solution:

Due to the higher concentration of salt, their cell cytoplasm is hypertonic causing water from the surrounding cells or region to enter the cell cytoplasm. The pressure

exerted by the cell will be higher. Salt secreting glands will be present for controlling this pressure that removes excess of salts.
