There is a lack of a comprehensive study of eastern Adriatic salt marsh vegetation with special attention to plant–soil relationships that determine individual plant assemblages. We surveyed 41 sites of salt marshes on the Croatian coastline in order to classify their vegetation by numerical methods and to compare the resulting groups in terms of soil chemical properties. A clear zonation between plant communities along the hydro-sequence was identified and was well represented by the dominance…

Soil macro-fauna respond to environmental variations along a coastal-inland gradient
The environmental variations along the coastal-inland gradient were found to have the potential to affect the soil macro-faunal communities, and the different taxa of the soil Macro-fauna responded to those variations in different ways.

Soil characteristics and plant distribution in saline wetlands of Oued Righ, northeastern Algeria
Saline wetlands are rare ecosystems in Saharan areas, which are important for conservation of many endemic and rare plant species. In this study, we investigated five saline wetland sites of the Oued

Coastal wetlands are very special environments, characterized by soils permanently or seasonally saturated by salt or brackish water. They host microorganisms and plants able to adapt to anoxic
Elytrigia repens co-occurs with glycophytes rather than characteristic halophytes in low-growing salt meadows on the southern Baltic Sea coast
An easy-to-use method for monitoring salt-meadow medium-term dynamics for applied nature conservation purposes and discusses the findings in terms of frequently observed vegetation changes in the light of salt meadow abandonment.
Coastal salt‐marsh zonation in Tyrrhenian central Italy and its relationship with other Mediterranean wetlands
Abstract The spatial patterns of salt‐marsh vegetation in the central Mediterranean district (Tyrrhenian central Italy) were analysed by establishing the plant‐community distribution in the Orbetello
