Halosere

Halosere is an ecological term which describes succession in a saline environment. An example of a halosere would be a salt marsh. In a river estuary, large amounts of silt are deposited by the ebbing tides and inflowing rivers. The earliest plant colonizers are algae and eel grass which can tolerate submergence by the tide for most of the 12-hour
