Saharan halophytics

WWF Abstract

The wetlands of the Saharan Halophytics ecoregions are literally oases within the northern Saharan Desert, and occur in isolated patches throughout Egypt, Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, Western Sahara, and Mauritania. These bodies of life-giving water support a surprising diversity of animals and plants. Plants that thrive in salty environments are known as halophytes, a term that gives this ecoregion its name.
