Structure of hydrophilic vegetation from the littoral zone of the Middle Caspian Sea

Higher Aquatic Plants

Abstract

The structure of hydrophilic vegetation from the littoral zone of the Kizlyar Bay has been analyzed. The following typological complexes have been determined: halohydrophyton, halohygrophyton, halopaludophyton, and psammohydrophiton. The halohydrophyton and halohygrophyton formations are characterized.

Keywords
