Saline Vegetation Of Molochny Estuary Coast: Distribution Patterns
L. ÃÂ. Namlieva
The patterns of distributing of halophytic vegetation in North–Western Priazov’ya on the whole and on the coast of the Molochny estuary, in particular were considered. The distribution caused by the location of saline soils and degree of their salinity. The vegetation of saline soils can be expressly divided into two groups: vegetation of marine and estuaries banks, and vegetation of saline lands. The natural vegetation of right bank of the Molochny estuary tested considerable anthropogenic influence, that’s why it is preserved mainly on the steep slope of right bank the estuary. Here, some three groups were selected: vegetation of near-estuary part, vegetation of slope of the right bank, and vegetation of uplifted plateau.
