Further, it would preclude the successful establishment of any future seedlings of these phreatophytic
species, thus ensuring their extinction in this area.
The presence of phreatophytic
woodlands is a determining factor in fixing and stabilizing dunes.

desert plants in a hyperarid desert with saline groundwater.

An inverse leafing phenology is prevalent in phreatophytic
species (Janzen 1970, Holbrook et al.
Willows and poplars are also phreatophytic
species that in addition to stabilizing the bank take up and transpire leachate, thereby reducing the flow going into the sewer and saving leachate treatment costs.
steppe (scattered), contracted (clustered) and phreatophytic
trees, such as poplars and willows, are particularly suited to this role (Ferro et al.
The edible plants of the Namib and Kalahari deserts include several species of cucurbits with fruits that are full of water: among them are the nara (Acanthosicyos horridus), a phreatophytic
species that grows on dunes, the African cucumber (Cucumis africanus), and the wild Tsama watermelon (Citrullus lanatus); C.
