Competition between Salicornia europaea and Atriplex prostrata (Chenopodiaceae) along an experimental salinity gradient


Competition between Salicornia europaea and Atriplex prostrata (Chenopodiaceae) along an experimental salinity gradient



Wetlands Ecology and Management 9(6): 457-461

Salicornia europaea is a halophyte that often occupies the lowest and most saline (>3.5% total salt) areas of salt marshes. Atriplex prostrata is less salt tolerant than S. europaea and often grows in a less saline (<2.0% total salts) zone adjacent to S. europaea. The purpose of this experiment was to determine the competitive outcome when these two species are grown at different salinities to ascertain the extent salinity and competition affect plant zonation.
