Among the plants of conservation interest in the ‘Sentina’ Natural Reserve, monitoring was carried out based on the red lists, the plant rarity, and the importance of their habitat. The following taxa were chosen for the monitoring from 2007 to 2012: Ranunculus peltatus subsp. baudotii, Euphorbia terracina, Carex extensa, Rumex palustris, Elytrigia juncea subsp. juncea, Spartina versicolor, Eryngium maritimum, Artemisia caerulescens subsp. caerulescens, Medicago marina, Salicornia perennans subsp. perennans, Crypsis schoenoides, Crypsis aculeata, and Halimione portulacoides.
Following this monitoring, management activities that will be useful for the conservation of the flora of the Natural Reserve are here proposed.
