Title LEAF ANATOMY OF PLANTS FROM COSTAL MEDITERRANEAN SALT MARSHES DICOTYLEDONS
Source Candollea
Abstract Different anatomical aspects are studied on 18 taxa [Sarcocornia fruticosa, Arthrocnemum macrostachyum, Salicornia ramosissima, Halimione portulacoides, Atriplex halimus, Suaeda vera, S. maritima, Spergularia media, S. bocconii, Coronopus didymus, Frantienia laevis, F. pulverulenta, Limonium vulgare, L. oleifolium, Plantago crassifolia, P. coronopus, Inula crithmoides, Sonchus maritimus] from Mediterranean salt marshes. Eleven of them are studied for the first time. Distinct adaptative mechanisms to environment are analyzed, and as a result, the reduced stomatal number without protective structures, and chlorenchymas with two or more cell layers, are constant; trichomes and mechanical tissues are also very scarce. Adaptations forming two different groups are presented: The first one characterized by succulence, with indifferentiated chlorenchymas and enlarged epidermal cells with gross-cuticles; the second one with salt secretion glands, epidermal cells with gross external walls and thin cuticle. There are occasionally foliar structures or different combinations as adaptations.
