Abstract

There are large areas of the Earth in which high salinity is a natural part of the environment. In such habitats survive only special group of plants called halophytes. To be able to survive in such habitats, halophytes develop different adaptations as salt glands, salt exclusion, succulence and shedding plant parts. The best known halophytes in the World are mangroves and Monterey Cypress. In Croatian flora there are several tens of halophytes but the best known are Beta vulgaris, Inula crithmoides, Halimione portulacoides, Salicornia europea, Juncus acutus, Critmum maritimum te Limonium cancellatum.
