Salsola soda L. (Amaranthaceae) is an annual halophyte plant native of the Mediterranean coast and was recorded for the first time in the mid-twentieth century in two estuarial habitats, on the Pacific coast in the United States and on the Atlantic coast of Argentina, where grows as dense, practically monotypic populations, just above the high tide line, becoming invasive at both sites. This data support attempts to explain the seed production per plant, their viability, salt tolerance and capacity of spread through seawater and then germinate to colonize new remotes sites.
