On the other hand, infrequent tide flushing and hypersalinity formed mangrovesalt marsh ecotones where salt-tolerant species like Halocnemum
strobilaceum, Suaeda aegyptiaca, Suaeda maritima, Halopeplis perfoliata, Arthrocnemum macrostachyum, and Salicornia herbacea (Table 4) were zoned beyond the dense mangrove areas.
The species of Amaranthaceae (conserved name according to Stevens, 2001 onwards) are very frequent in the supra-littoral vegetation of the European coasts and in saltpans (Anabasis, Arthrocnemum, Halocnemum
, Salicornia, Salsola, Sarcocornia, Suaeda, etc.), together with other halophytes able to tolerate high saline concentration and with frequent adaptations to physiological dryness.
The Thilloth (halocnemum
strobilaceumhas) is a shrub that grows in the littoral salt marshes along the shores of Qatar and the Gulf, and is most common in south-west Qatar.
Xiao-Xia Q, Zhen-Ying H, Baskin JM, Baskin CC (2008) Effect of temperature, light and salinity on seed germination and radicle growth of the geographically widespread halophyte shrub Halocnemum
DOHA THE 2013 'A Flower Each Spring' programme is dedicated to the conservation of Thilooth (halocnemum
strobilaceum), a shrub that grows in the littoral salt marshes along the shores of the Gulf, especially in south-west Qatar, Chairman of the Friends of the Environment Centre Dr Saif Ali al Hajari has said.
En algunos tramos aparecen criptohumedales con quenopodiaceas perennes arbustivas, como Sarcocornia fruticosa, Arthrocnemum macrostachyum y Halocnemum
strobilaceum (Caballero et al., 2002; Pardo et al., 2003, 2005).
In Tunisia, its larvae are known to fashion silken tubes on a different saltbush, Halocnemum
strobilaceum (Chenopodiaceae), which are similar to those observed on Tetraena.
The solonchak deserts found in different regions of Earth are characterized by the presence of chenopodiaceous subshrubs of the genera Halocnemum, Halostachys, and Kalidium.
For example, most of the solonchaks of central Asia are dominated by clumps of chenopods, mainly sarsasan (Halocnemum strobilaceum) and Kalidium spp.
macrostachyum in the phytocoenoses of Oropos, and Halocnemum
strobilaceum was found in the phytocoenoses of the Spercheios River Delta (Table 5).
