A newly-reported Salicornia europaea population under threat

A previously unreported population of Salicornia europaea has been found on the edges of a small tidal inlet in the emirate of Umm al-Qaiwain.‎ It appears to be different from two ecotypes of the species found in other parts of the United Arab Emirates (UAE).‎ The location has large numbers of an introduced halophytic plant species, Sesuvium portulacastrum, which serve to inhibit the growing of local species.‎ The number of plants of the local S.‎ europaea ecotype is low and the species may disappear.‎ The eradication of the alien species of S.‎ portulacastrum from the area is necessary to protect the S.‎ europaea ecotype and other local flora in the area.‎
