A Review on Phytochemical Analysis and Ethnobotanical Uses of Haloxylon stocksii
Haloxylon stocksi - A Mini Review
Haloxylon stocksii (family: Chenopodiaceae) is a succulent halophyte shrub tolerant to environmental stresses making it suitable for cultivation in saline land of arid and semi-arid regions because it is tolerant to abiotic stresses such as drought and high temperature. It has useful applications that contain fruiting tops and stem as animal feed, different plant parts for medicine, and re-establishment of tarnished lands. One major factor hindering its successful development and promotion is the inadequate and scattered knowledge available on these species. The purpose of this article is to highlight the importance of H. stocksii by summarizing information on occurrence, ecology, medicinal and other uses, cultivation and ethnobotany to stimulate interest to promote its domestication and commercialization for regional and global markets. Moreover, it also summarized reported phytochemistry and pharmacological activities.
