The flowers are not much visible and arranged three by three with the central one bigger.


It flowers in July-August. Materials and methods Salicornia fruticosa L. The plant was identified by Dr.

Corn oil was obtained from Tanta company for oils and salicornia fruticosa, Tanta, Egypt. Methods Sample preparation for salicornia fruticosa extracts: The dried product was ground into powder to pass through a 60 mesh sieve. These fractions were used in analyses for the chemical composition.

Moisture; crude protein; ether extract; ash and crude fiber content were determined according to the methods described in the A. Total carbohydrates were calculat- ed by difference. Extraction of total phenolic compounds The prepared ground sample 5 g were macerated in 50 mL of each solvent absolute methanol, ethanol, chloroform and water for 24 hours at room temperature.

The crude solvent extracts were filtrated salicornia fruticosa filter paper Whatman No. Quantitative determination of total Phenolic compounds The concentrations of total phenols in each extract were esti- mated with Folin-Ciocalteau reagent Gutfinger, HPLC determination and identification of Phenolic com- pounds Phenolic compounds of samples were extracted according to salicornia fruticosa method outlined by Evangelisti, salicornia fruticosa al.

Salicornia fruticosa L.

Ecology[ edit ] Salicornia species are used as food plants by the larvae of some Lepidoptera species, including the Coleophora case-bearers C. Phylogenetics[ edit ] The genus probably originated during the Miocene in the region between the Mediterranean basin and Central Asia.

Evolving from within the perennial and frost-sensitive genus Sarcocornia, the annual, strongly salicornia fruticosa and frost-tolerant Salicornia diversified during the late Pliocene salicornia fruticosa early Pleistocene. By events of intercontinental dispersals, they reached southern Africa twice, North America at least three times.

Two tetraploid lineages expanded rapidly, with the ability to colonize lower belts salicornia fruticosa the saltmarshes than their diploid relatives. Inbreeding and salicornia fruticosa isolation led to a large number of reproductive isolated species that are only weakly differentiated.

The reasons for those difficulties are the reduced habit with weak morphological differentiation, and high phenotypic variability.
