The genus Salsola (Chenopodiaceae) in southern Africa: systematic significance of leaf anatomy



The genus Salsola (Chenopodiaceae) in southern Africa: systematic significance of leaf anatomy



South African Journal of Botany 67(4): 540-551



Almost 90 species of Salsola are believed to occur in southern Africa. Correct identification of the different species is, however, rendered problematic by the great morphological similarity of almost all the species, uncertainties concerning the specific status of several entities and the unsatisfactory infrageneric classification of the group. A comparative anatomical study of the leaves of southern African Salsola species was conducted using LM and SEM techniques.
