The high number of wetlands in Andalusia, among which some of the most emblematic and valuable of Spain can be found, highlights the importance of humid areas in the region. Wetlands constitute one of the richest and most productive ecosystems of the planet as they are of great importance due to their high biodiversity and their ecologic, socio-economic and landscape values, what makes them have a prioritary interest in conservation. Their scientific interest should also be noted, as these ecosystems behave as genuine natural laboratories where phytogeographical aspects such as migration of plants, and taxonomic aspects (e.g. speciation) can be studied. Despite the great value of saline wetlands, many aspects of their ecology, vegetation dynamics and floristic and phytocenotic composition still remain unknown. The aim of this doctoral thesis is to explain these topics.
