Abstract

This work presents the results of floristic investigations of the dry seafloor of Aral Sea in its south part. For the first time 216 species of the higher plants have been shown to be growing in the south drying seafloor of Aral Sea. Analysis of genera and species according to the family shows that the large 7 families: Chenopodiaceae, Asteraceae, Brassicaceae, Polygonaceae, Poaceae, Fabaceae, Boraginaceae unite make up 158 species. The largest family is Chenopodiaceae includes 24 genera and 59 species. Other 6 large families compose 58 genera and 99 species; 20 families have only one genus and one species. Refs 43. Figs 2.
