Abstract
The plant communities, and the edaphic factors controlling their distribution, of salt marshes on Egypts's Mediterranean coast were studied. Five major communities were identified, dominated by five perennials: Zygophyllum aegyptium, Arthrocnemum macrostachyum, Halocnemum strobilaccum, Juncus acutus and Juncus rigidus. The main edaphic factors in this habitat are: calcium carbonate, organic carbon, sulfate, bicarbonate and potassium.
