The vegetation of this desert consists of xerophytes
, adjusted to low moisture, extremely hot temperature, and more salinity with wide variation of edaphic factors.
A subset of xerophytes
, succulents are able to survive an irregular, unpredictable, spotty or seasonal supply of water.
Yatay palm forest and forest of exotic xerophytes
(white cedar Melia azedarach, Gigg's firethorn Pyracantha atalantoides, honey locust Gleditsia triacanthos, broad-leaf privet Ligustrum lucidum, Chinese privet Ligustrum sinense).
Warming  developed a qualitative classification of species according to their ability to use a particular share of gradient (for example, based on moisture: xerophytes
, mesophytes, hygrophytes, hydrophites; on light: sciophytes and heliophytes) .
Simultaneous equations somehow, magically, morphed into cricketers' batting averages; xerophytes
and pteridophytes in the botany class miraculously gave root to the simple curry leaf tree and its aromatic leaves that, when added to thinned, slightly chilled butter milk, made the most refreshing drink on a hot day of cricket under the summer sun.
maghrebiana (Maghreb maritime pine) and spiny Xerophytes
plant species have mechanisms to overcome drought stress and these mechanism could be considered the endophytic association and interaction between plant and rhizobacteria able to improve the plant growth under abiotic stress conditions (2).
Baas and Carlquist (1985) emphasize the presence of the following characters in xerophytes
and halophytes: small vessels (29-53 [mu]), high vessel frequency (92-150), semi-ring porous, and presence of fibre-tracheids.
vegetation that favors beekeeping development also grows in the district.
The sparse vegetation of this area consists of xerophytes
that are modified to extreme summer temperatures and moisture fluctuations with wide diversity of edaphic conditions.
Salinity is one of most threatening abiotic stresses to plants as saline area is three times greater than the agricultural land throughout the world, however many plants naturally adapt tolerance toward salt stress such as Halophytes, and xerophytes
etc (Boscaiu et al.
A promising solution could be to grow certain species of edible xerophytes
and/or halophytes, which would be cultivated under marginal conditions, such as salinity, by using water and land classified as inadequate for traditional fodder crops.
