The vegetation of two Ramsar wetlands (Chott Tinsilt and Sebkhet Ezzemoul) was characterized in this research study. Plant community included 34 species belonging to 16 families in Chott Tinsilt and 43 species belonging to 17 families in Sebkhet Ezzemoul. Most of the species are halophytes with low-medium vegetation cover. The generalized linear model indicated that the soil’s electrical conductivity and organic matter are the main drivers of spatiotemporal variations of plant species richness, abundance and distribution. This study proved the high plant diversity in these two wetlands, which makes a real biological heritage.
