Salinity effects on germination, growth, and seed production of the halophyte Cakile
The succulence of a coastal halophyte such as Cakile
edentula (Bigel.) Hook, is somewhat more pronounced.

* Beach mustard, cakile
arctica, is native to the Brassicaceae family, and found between dunes along the shore.
Invasive European Beach Grass, and native plants such as Searocket (Cakile
maritima), Sand Verbena (Ambronia umbellata), and Dune Grass (Leymus mollis) dominate dune vegetation.
Salinity effects on germination growth and seed production of the halophyte Cakile
Vegetation in coastal dunes is composed mainly by gramineous and herbaceous species, being the most commum Blutaparon portulacoides, Cakile
maritima and Panicum racemosum in frontal dunes and Panicum racemosum, Andropogon arenarius, Hydrocotyle bonariensis, Senecio crassiflorus, Asclepias mellodora, Androtrichum trigynum, Spartina ciliata in intermediate dunes (CORDAZZO; SEELIGER, 1995; SEELIGER, 1998a).
The vegetation observed in this zone was exclusively represented by scattered stands of Cakile
maritima and Salsola kali.
