Hordeum geniculatum is considered as an obligate halophyte, but exact data about ecological requirements of the species are lacking. Therefore, species response curves of H. geniculatum were obtained for soil reaction and nutrients using Borhidi's indicator values and LOESS smoother response model in the programme CANOCO. Our data showed that H. geniculatum can be regarded as an obligate halophyte preferring slightly to moderately saline soils with relatively high content of nutrients. The… 
Vegetation diversity of salt-rich grasslands in Southeast Europe
Question How does the plant species composition of Pontic–Pannonian salt-rich habitats vary on a large geographical scale? Do the floristic differences between Pannonia and the Balkans correspond
The impact of grazing absence in inland saline vegetation – a case study from Slovakia
It is unambiguously confirmed that inland saline vegetation responds to the cessation of such natural disturbance very quickly, and species richness and number of halophytes in the scale of 0.01 m2 decreased by half already two years after the abandonment.
SPECIAL FEATURE: GRASSLAND CLASSIFICATION Vegetation diversity of salt-rich grasslands in
Question: How does the plant species composition of Pontic-Pannonian salt- rich habitats vary on a large geographical scale? Do the floristic differences between Pannonia and the Balkans correspond
Mapping and analyzing the spatial distribution of the tribe Triticeae Dumort. (Poaceae) in Turkey.
The spatial distribution of Triticeae in Turkey was mapped in geographic information systems (GIS) by utilizing a large number of specimens collected from 1006 georeferenced sampling sites between 2004 and 2010 and indicated that 6 environmental variables, namely potential evapotranspiration, elevation, distance to seas, maximum temperature, slope, and longitude, are the most effective in explaining the spatial distribution.
Proline and glycine betaine accumulation in two succulent halophytes under natural and experimental conditions
Data suggest that halophytes possess built-in mechanisms, such as accumulation of additional osmolytes, to rapidly adapt to increasing salinity levels in their natural ecosystems; for example, those expected to be caused by climate change in salt marshes in the Mediterranean region.
Spatial and Temporal Variability of Soil Salinity in the Yangtze River Estuary Using Electromagnetic Induction
The temporal variation and spatial distribution characteristics of soil salinity in the YRE using geostatistics combined with proximally sensed information obtained by an electromagnetic induction (EM) survey method in typical years under the impoundment of the TGR showed that the area affected by soil Salinity gradually increased in different hydrological year types.


The present distribution and state of halophytic communities with Hordeum geniculatum in Slovakia
The paper provides information on the current occurrence of association Hordeetum hystricis Wendelbg. 1943 in Slovakia, where the community occurs at the northern border of its distribution range.
Environmental relationships of vegetation patterns in saltmarshes of central Argentina
We describe vegetation-environment relationships in the saltmarshes of central Argentina. Gradient analysis (Detrended canonical correspondence analysis, DCCA) was performed involving 14 parameters
Salt-tolerance in wild Hordeum (Poaceae) species: differences between H. maritimum With. and H. hystrix Roth. 2007
The aim of this study was to show the differences in germination and initial growth pattern between the two species, with relation to the level and the type of saline substrate (NaCl or Na2SO4), and to contribute to the knowledge of ecophysiology and natural distribution of H. hystrix, a species which has not been studied in-depth under this respect.
Inland halophilous vegetation as indicator of soil salinity
Research was done over the period of 1995‐1998 in the industrial and natural saline areas of the Kujawy region, central Poland. The study area was located mainly in the vicinity of two soda
Vegetation composition of a threatened hypersaline lake (Lake Bardawil), North Sinai
Lake Bardawil is the only oligotrophic hypersaline lagoon along theMediterranean coast of Egypt. Its ecological significance is increasing due tothe progressive degradation of comparable wetlands in
Carex secalina (Cyperaceae), a critically endangered species of Europe: historic and new localities in Poland
The studies revealed a positive correlation between the size of a population and cattle pasturing, i.e. C. secalina forms the largest populations in the habitats remaining under the intense pressure of grazing and treading and it was found that the high generative reproduction rate compensates the damage caused by animal grazing.
Biodiversity, utilization and management of grasslands of salt affected soils in Serbia
Salt affected soils especially in the arid and semi-arid regions of the world exhibit a significant increasing tendency. The relationship between plant/vegetation richness and soil salinity was
Is Any Angiosperm an Obligate Halophyte
A selective literature review summarized field and laboratory evidence for salt-tolerance limits for marine angiosperms, mangroves, and plants of coastal strand, salt desert, and salt marsh, finding no laboratory-based evidence which definitely showed any angiosperm to be an obligate halophyte, although some were shown to be facultative.
Restoration of a salt marsh system: temporal change of plant species diversity and composition
Abstract Salt marsh grassland along the coasts of the Baltic sea in Germany is the result of several hundred years of agricultural activities, which replaced reeds of the brackish water zone
Modelling Environmental Responses of Plant Associations: A Review of Some Critical Concepts in Vegetation Study
It is believed that plant associations as well as the higher syntaxa can be regarded as fuzzy sets in an operational context for describing vegetation along ecological gradients in synthetic ways and can further the understanding of vegetation variation.
