In arid and semiarid regions, rainfall is low, and when surface water cannot meet the demands of plants, underground water is instead exploited. When this water is transported upwards, it carries with it minerals that are taken up by plants, and extra salts subsequently accumulate in surface soil layers. Hence, drought and salinization often occur at the same time. Therefore, when selecting tree/shrubs species, their capacity to deal with drought and waterlogging must also be taken into account (Zhang 1997).
