Halophytes Theme Path 

The area in question is characterised by periodic outcrops of brackish water probably originating from the salt-pan tributary channel, which infiltrates and creates conditions of high salinity where only species adapted to these brackish environments (halophytes) are able to grow significantly.

This type of low herbaceous/succulent vegetation represents a protected ecosystem under protection.

It is devoid of trees because they cannot withstand the high degree of salinity. The halophyte environment consists of two habitats, the Salicornet and Junket.

The saltcedar, (Habitat 1310 'Pioneer vegetation with Salicornia and other annual species of muddy and sandy areas') is an ecosystem characterised by the predominant presence of halophytic* species commonly called saltcedar (Salicornia, Arthrocnemum, Halocnemum, Suaeda, etc.).

The bulrush (habitat 1410 "Mediterranean flooded pastures - Juncetalia maritimi") is well represented along the entire north Adriatic coast, sometimes forming more or less regular belts close to the canals and salt marshes in the Cervia pine forest and salt marshes
