  •  So how do they take in water & nutrients then? (3+ / 0-)

    It seems they must still need both of those despite being immersed in water for most of their life. Seems they'd need to filter out the salt as well somehow as that can kill most land plants.

    In fact, how any of the life forms survive in the salt (and why others can't) would be interesting to learn about.

    Thanks for improving my knowledge. You do have a talent for gentle but effective education without condescension.
