Background and Objective: The anthropogenic disturbance on vegetation in El-Maktala coastal land, an unprotected area in the North Western coast of Egypt. That has recently been subjected to blatant encroachments of vegetation, were studied. Materials and Methods: To estimate the vegetation structure in EL-Maktala coastal land, 12 stands were chose...

This paper presents an assessment of changes in Avicennia marina population along the Egyptian coasts of the Red Sea. A retrospective analysis of the mangrove cover and distribution was carried out. The populations in Sharm El-Bahary and wadi El-Gimal lack at least one or more volume class stages, while all volume classes are represented in the las...

Background and Objective: Nitraria retusa is a salt-tolerant and drought-resistant shrub located in the Nitrariaceae family. Floristic composition and soil characters in representative habitats of Nitraria retusa were analyzed in terms of habitat variations and vegetation dynamics. Materials and Methods: A total of 12 sites were surveyed and ninete...

The present study aims to assess medicinal plants in Al Riyad region comparing with total medicinal plants in Saudi Arabia Kingdom. This may be useful in developing strategies for the sustainable use of one of the threatened natural resources in Saudi Arabia. The result revealed that there are 108 species were recorded, belonging to 36 families and...

The study is an efficient protocol to describe in vitro the propagation of an endangered medicinal cactus plant belongs to Apocynaceae, namely: Caralluma retrospeciens (Ehrenb.) N.E.Br. naturally grows in some wadis of Elba Mountain at the southeastern part of Egypt. The current study is the first one in Egypt to propagate this type of cacti in vit...

This study investigated the soil seed bank composition and standing vegetation over five different microhabitats (terraces, springs, wadi bed, saltmarshes and sand dunes) of a coastal ecosystem along the North Western Coast of Egypt. The floristic composition and diversity of the soil seed bank, as well as its similarity with the standing vegetatio...

The segregation of a few dominant plant species into distinctive zones is characteristic of salt marshes. Vegetation zonation was investigated in the littoral salt marshes (South Marsa Alam region) and the inland salt marshes (Wadi El-Natrun region) of Egypt. Twenty taxa belonging to 18 genera and 11 families were recorded and classified into two s...

Acacia trees are considered keystone species in many desert ecosystems and suffer from different anthropogenic effects. This study estimated the size structure of Acacia trees population in El-Taif area, which indicated that all the populations of Acacia present in El-Taif Area seems to be young as the proportion of small and medium individuals is...

The present study aims to investigate the variation in vegetation and species diversity in two coastal wadis which drain their water from surrounding high mountains into the Red Sea. It attempted to compare the floristic diversity between these wadis to recognize the different distribution patterns of species, and to assess the role of the edaphic...

The vegetation analysis and species distribution at the present study, emphasizing that the environmental factors has an important effect on the plant communities. About 69 species belonging to 56 genera related to 27 families were observed in the studied localities, distributed as follow: South Sinai was represented by one location namely: Feiran...

Aiming at the environmental development of the deltaic Mediterranean coastal desert of Egypt, multipurpose projects had been implemented. Studies threw light on the physical environment (climate, geomorphology, hydrogeology, hydrogeochemistry and soil) and natural plant life of the area. Field experiments and laboratory analyses were conducted to t...

The Egyptian coastal and inland deserts cover more than 96 % of its total area. These deserts are characterized by the growth of a permanent framework of halophytic and xerophytic vegetation types in seven different habitats, namely: mangrove swamps, reed swamps, salt marshes, sand dunes, rocky ridges, desert wadis and mountains. The main communit...

This study assesses the plant communities and edaphic factors that govern species distribution on the coastal desert of Sidi Abd El-Rahman sector, Western Mediterranean Coast of Egypt. A survey of soil and vegetation was conducted to clarify the relationship between the soil properties and the vegetation types of this sector. The application of TWI...

This study throws light on the vegetation and nutritive value of three communities dominated by three halophytes namely: Atriplex halimus L. (Saltbush), Nitraria retusa (Forssk.) Asch. (Salt tree) and Juncus rigidus Desf. (Thread rush). The vegetation analysis of the three communities was carried out using the line transect method. The distribution...
