Early responses of Bassia
diffusa (Thunb.) Kuntze to submergence for different salinity treatments.
All roadsides contained dense grasses of various species and heights, including Johnsongrass (Sorghum halepense), blue grama (Bouteloua gracilis), little bluestem (Schizachyrium scoparium), and sprangletop (Leptochloa fusca), as well as some forbs including burningbush (Bassia

The vegetation population structure in desert grasslands is relatively simple, and the dominant species are small shrubs and subshrubs, including Asterothamnus centrali-asiaticus Novopokr., Reaumuria soongorica (Pall.) Maxim., Salsola passerina Punge, Sympegma regelli Bunge, and some ephemeral plant species such as Suaeda glauca (Bge.) Bgc., Bassia
Gelatinous zooplankton assemblages associated with water masses in the Humboldt Current System, and potential predatory impact by Bassia
bassensis (Siphonophora: Calycophorae).
A number of species listed in Table 1 have spread into the area due to increasing human encroachment, such as Erigeron bonariensis, Portulaca olereaca, Sonchus oleraceus, and Solanum nigrum, as well as the halophytes Bassia
muricata, Cressa cretica, Salsola imbricata, and Suaeda aegyptiaca.
Kiran and Singh (2002) determined the efficacy of six types of vegetable oils (mustard, linseed, groundnut, till (Sesamum indicum), neem and mahua (Bassia
latifolia) oils against the pulse beetle, C.
The grassland is dominated by Stipa breviflora Griseb, Artemisia frigida Willd, Cleistogenes songorica (Roshev) Ohwi, and accompanied by Convolvulus ammannii Desr, Heteropappus altaicus (Willd) Novopokr, Neopallasia petinata (Pall) Poljak, Bassia
