All taxa belonging to phanerophyte and nano-phanerophyte life- forms sensu Raunkiaer (Pignatti, 1982) were considered, including some taxa being phanerophytes or nano-phanerophytes only secondarily (namely Asparagus acutifolius, Atriplex halimus, and Santolina etrusco).
La classification des types biologique prend en compte la position de bourgeon de renovation du vegetal par rapport au sol durant la periode froide est permet de reconnaitre 5 types biologiques, definis par Raunkiaer (1934) selon la nature morphologique et qui sont: phanerophyte, chamaephyte, hemicryptophyte, geophytes et therophytes.
While the principal strategy used in Caatinga phytoclimates to avoid water loss during the dry season is a predominance of therophytes, the caatinga studied here adapted a phanerophyte strategy of leaf-fall (Larcher, 2000).
The high humidity and salt content in the mangrove soils have made survival difficult for a great diversity of phanerophyte plants that need strategies for surviving in an anoxide and salubrious environment.
This Asian phanerophyte is widely cultivated as an ornamental tree, in Spain predominantly in the eastern and southern parts of the country.
Growth form (erect, semi-erect, or prostrate) and life form (trees, phanerophyte, chamaephyte, annual shrubs, perennial forbs, perennial grasses, biennial forbs, therophyte, or climbers) were assigned following Ali and Jari [1] and Sankary[26].
We assigned the life-form of each species with an identification key (Mueller-Dombois and Ellenberg, 1974), considering only Raunkiaer's major classes - phanerophytes, chamaephytes, hemicryptophytes, cryptophytes, and therophytes - and including lianas in the "phanerophyte" class and geophytes in the "cryptophyte" class, as originally proposed by Raunkiaer (1934).

It was either the only phanerophyte in the water or shared the habitat with Ruppia maritima.
The biological types are: C chamaephyte, G geophyte, H hemicryptophyte, Hy hydrophyte, P phanerophyte, T therophyte.
Others are Hemicryptophytes (24%), Phanerophytes (12%), and Geophytes (10%), that is, 54% of Iranian-Toranian plant.
