Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

In desert areas of Israel, Sinai and the neighbouring countries, there are species of Blepharis, plus at least 6 different populations of types not yet classified. Differences such as rates of root elongation in response to temperature, structure of inflorescences and spiny bracts, and mechanisms of seed dispersal were found in these species and types. Flowering was day-neutral. The quantity and distribution of rain, soil humidity and temperature seem to regulate the age of the plant at flower-bud appearance and flowering. -from Author
