Caption

Salt-tolerant plant. Saltwort plant (Salicornia sp.) growing in a soil with a high salt content. This plant is growing in the dried up seabed of the Aral Sea. This inland sea, once one of the largest in the world, is in the Central Asian nations of Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan. In the 1930s the Soviet Union dug canals that diverted the sea's major rivers to irrigate cotton fields. From the 1960s, the sea started to shrink, and by 2004 some 75 percent of the sea's area had been lost. This environmental disaster has led to changes in the climate and the seasons, and the replacement of the old flora and fauna with desert plants and animals.
