MA241 Black Sea littoral saltmarsh

new search

Black Sea salt marshes on sandy and muddy substrates along sheltered shores, characterised by small tidal ranges and relatively low salinity. In most sites, tall rushes dominate, but locally shrub and herb communities may occur, that outside the coastal region are found in (inland) continental salt pans. Due to desiccation, the substrate of such communities in the upper zone can be hypersaline.
