MA222 Atlantic upper saltmarsh

new search

Upper zone of Atlantic salt marshes, with (extreme) fluctuating salinity and often influenced by fresh water seepage from surrounding dunes. This specific setting is reflected by species ranging from obligate halophytes to brackish and fresh water and dry dune indicators. Stands are often small and ephemeric, may be relatively species rich, with many annuals. They are often embedded in wet grassland or dry dune habitat.
