Title Halophytication in Harran (Sanliurfa) and Amik Plain (Hatay) in Turkey
Source Phytologia Balcanica
Abstract In the studied areas of the Harran and Amik plains some halophytic species are distributed. The number of these species in the Harran Plain has started to increase due to improper irrigation after the starting of GAP (Southeast Anatolian Project). Some of these species distributed in the two plains are: Salsola crassa, S. dendroides, S. soda, Petrosimonia brachiata, Frankenia pulverulenta, Cressa cretica, Chen opodium foliosum, Ch. vulvaria, Salicornia europaea, Aeluropus lagopoides var. lagopoides, Sideritis montana subsp. montana, Hordeum geniculatum, Lolium subulatum, Cynodon dactylon var. villosus, and Peganum harmala. In the flatlands of Hatay, where soil salinity is either small or medium, the following new associations have been found: Alhago manniferae-Hordetum murinumae, Prosopo farctae-Hordetum murinumae, Cresso creticae-Hordetum murinumae, Ammio visnagae-Hordeturn murinumae, and in Akcakale: Aeluropuseto lagopoidesae-Chenopodietum vulvariae, Frankenieto pulverulentae-Salsoletum sodae and Cresso creticae-Aeluropusetum lagopoidesae. The phytosociologic properties and productivity of these associations differ from each other and are subject to seasonal changes.
