Essentially, three types of vegetated flats can be distinguished relative to the dominant species (Loriente, 1987), and their increases in height have been mapped: the mud flats in the northern area are colonised by Zostera noltii, adopting a subrectangular surface along N-S direction; Spartina maritima and Halimione portulacoides
Zinc tolerance and accumulation in the salt-marsh shrub Halimione portulacoides
Biological flora of the British Isles: Halimione portulacoides
Two perennial species, Halimione portulacoides and Aster tripolium, became rare on these marshes when they were exposed to heavy grazing.
maritima cover decreased from 40% to 5%, whereas the percent cover of a rubra and Halimione portulacoides increased.
Furthermore some of the species reported recently from Siracusa (1995) were not found, as Euphorbia dendroides, Halimione portulacoides
, Heliotropium bocconei, Reichardia picroides var.
Other frequent species within this vegetation-type are the succulent halophytes Arthrocnemum macrostachyum and Limbarda crithmoides; the rosulate hemicriptophytes Limonium cossonianum, Limonium caesium, and Limonium santapolense, and other halophytes such as Halimione portulacoides
or Frankenia corymbosa.
Sarcocornia fruticosa and Halimione portulacoides were always present along with A.
A community dominated by Sarcocornia perennis and Halimione portulacoides, reported from the Yumortalik Lagoon, Turkey (ALTINOZLU, 2004) seems most similar to our community.
